RE: 2023 Grand Tour Q & A
I was asked if this was an acceptable hypothetical photo submission. If the garage door were to be a mural, let's say, the bike would count as a significant portion of your bike. What that rule was meant to prevent is people taking a picture of a mural with just the top of their windshield or a single mirror in the photo.

OK. Fuel tank, handlebars and instruments plus rally flag and bonus mural, and we are good to go. Smile

RE: 2023 Grand Tour Q & A
While doing some planning for the ABM GT, I came across the situation of multiple bonus murals in close proximity. The 2023 Rules cover this situation by saying that "if you can push the bike from one mural to the next, then that is the same location" and only 1 point.

This got me to thinking "how far would I push my bike".

If I use a NFL football field (100 yards) as an example, then I might consider pushing my bike to the half way line, but there is no way I'd push it all the way. I am going to jump on the bike and ride to the goal line.

So is 100 yard / 90 metres / 1 football field a reasonable distance between 2 bonuses in order to qualify as 2 locations ??

300' is enough distance.

We're in Australia and we're playing, so I guess they'll let you in. Undecided

I have started my collection and am at the point of emailing them. My camera takes 4mb files. Are these too big or would you prefer them reduced?

Yep, there are no location specific tags this year so go for it.

I got your email, and it works fine. You can either email as you go, or save them up until the end. Just have to remember to beat the deadline with submissions.

Email works, or you can use an online hosting site like google drive, smugmug, flickr, Facebook, whatever. Just has to be shareable.

Will you be posting monthly updates?
Is there a place to post pics for others in GT to see?

Updates, no. Most people don't turn in photos until the end of the event.

Do these work?
Jean wants to know if Quilt Barn Squares will work- theyre almost always bigger than 8x8 except ours at home which is 7x7 because that's the entire tractor shed door.

also, do "living" murals count, like ones made from trees or flowers.

and advertising- I know of a couple of really well painted Coca-Cola murals on buildings, real old school Coke logos too

TIA

Barn quilts - yes

Living murals - no

Advertising - yes as long as it is meant to be art, or a celebration/commemoration of the graphic arts and not an actual business advertisement. It also can't be a machine printed/mass produced advertisement.

Murals made up from mosaic tiles? Yes or no?

I've come across a couple already and need to know if they'll count.

mu·ral
/ˈmyo͝or(ə)l/
noun
a painting or other work of art executed directly on a wall.

As long as it is on a wall and not something you would walk on, sure. There was a question earlier about living murals [flowers/trees] and that does not count as it's not on a wall.
