Everyone is encouraged to take part, whether you’re new to CrossFit® or have been part of the sport for a decade, and regardless of how much experience you have with photography. Let’s celebrate this incredible community together!

Photography Competition Categories

Effort & Energy

For photos that showcase strength, such as athletes trying harder than ever to achieve a milestone, the power of the supporters on the side-lines, or the resilience through the silence of your garage gym.

Portrait & Emotions

For photos that shine a light on the mid-workout struggle, the pain or relief at the end, the feeling as you collapse on the floor, the tension before the start, or the elation of hitting a new PB. Show us your photos portraying the emotions surrounding the Open, up close and personal.

Open Category

For all photos that you believe are great but don’t quite fit into the other two categories. Share with us what the Open is about for you!

Submissions will open on Thursday, February 24 and close on Sunday, March 20. All pictures will be uploaded to our Facebook page the following day and voting for the overall winner will begin.

The BOXROX team will determine the winner for each category, but the community will vote on the overall winner, so if you submit a photo get all your friends to like it on our Facebook page.

All winners will be announced on April 1st, 2022, via BOXROX’s site.


There will be an overall winner and three separate category winners.

The overall winner of the 2022 BOXROX Photography Competition will win:

The three category winners will each win:

ALL participants will receive a 15% off discount code from Born Primitive after sending their photo(s).*

The CrossFit® Open is when the diversity of the global CrossFit® community shines at its brightest, and we want to reflect this in the work of BOXROX going forward.

To celebrate our community’s diversity – where people of all ages, backgrounds, ethnicities, body shapes, and sporting experience come together for the love of fitness – we’ll publish the best photos in upcoming articles throughout the rest of the year.

By submitting your photos you agree to have your work featured in the BOXROX website and the magazine’s related channels.
