Fashion X & Roger Beasley Mazda are incredibly excited to create a fully revamped fashion photography competition this Fall.


  • If you’re a photographer, register below. Deadline to register is June 1, 2018. There are NO FEES to register or participate.
  • Once you have registered, we will send you a series of about 25 images of Mazda vehicles both past and present. You may choose one image that inspires you.
  • Go create one stunning photograph inspired by your Mazda image.
  • Submit the image to Fashion X no later than July 31, 2018.
  • A panel of judges will select the top images and those will be entered into the final round of the competition.
  • The finalist images will be posted to for online voting.
  • On September 6, 2018, the event “Road Trip” will take place at The Line in downtown Austin. All finalist images will be displayed along with some really cool activations around the Road Trip theme.
  • The winner of the online vote and the critic’s vote will be announced with major prize packages being handed out that night to the winning photographer.

    There will be two winners crowned.

    The People’s Choice Award will be by popular vote through an online contest.

    The Critic’s Choice Award will be voted on by an esteemed panel of judges viewing the images without knowing the photographer in advance. The Critic’s Choice Award will be considered the “grand prize.”

    Prizes will be announced shortly and will stay within the context of “Road Trip.”
