2012 covers

With 2012 coming to a close we figured it’s a good time to look back and let you guys decide which cover takes the top honors of the year. For us at the magazine, picking a photo for the cover can at times be extremely difficult and at other times extremely easy. There will either be lots of debate and going back and forth between a number of photos, or one photo will come along and slap us all in the face as an obvious choice. Shooting for a cover, on the other hand, is never easy. A lot of time, energy, effort, planning and a little luck are required from the rider, the photographer, and often times the people helping: boat drivers, chase boat drivers, lighting assistants, etc. to make it happen. 2012 was a solid year in terms of covers for Alliance. We pride ourselves on providing you, the readers, with the most unique shots throughout the year on the front of each issue of the magazine. They say don’t judge a book by its cover, but in the world of magazines that rule doesn’t exactly apply. So we’d like you to take a moment and judge the eight covers that were released in the 2012 Alliance publishing year. Cast your vote and let’s see which cover comes out on top.
