Last month we printed the top entries from our tenth Photochop Challenge to create your version of the new VW Jetta, as well as putting all the entries online at eurotuner.com
This time, we’re giving you two photos of Ford’s brand new Focus both four-door sedan and hatchback.
This is the first time we’ve offered a Ford in the Photochop challenge, but its European roots make it as legitimate as Mexican-built Jettas, in our opinion!
What’s more, the rally heritage of the Focus makes it a great contender for a challenge such as this, while the sedan version has the look of a small Audi A4 of BMW 3-Series.
So choose which photo you wish to work on (do both if you like), and send us the result of your Photoshop work. Provided you use the supplied photos as the basis, you can do whatever you want to the car and background. You can either scan the photo here or download it from eurotuner.com
Because we like to reward effort, we’re delighted to confirm that Ken Block at DC Shoes has kindly offered to donate another pair of his awesome Pro Spec 1.0 competition driving shoes to the best effort.
These cost around $200 in stores or online, but we’ll award a pair to the photochop entry selected by Derek Jenkins (head of design at Mazda NA and formerly with VWoA) as the most creative and best executed.
The FIA-approved Pro Spec comes in Royal blue and was developed for use by professional drivers like Ken; co-founder of the premier skate shoe company, Ford WRC driver and star of the gymkhana video.
