The Ride of the Month (ROTM) will be a monthly contest that gives you a chance to be featured on the home page of eatsleepdsmmag.com. At the beginning of every month, you will be able to submit your car into the ROTM contest. Each contest determines the following months Ride of the Month winner. For example, if Submission opens on June 1st, the contest will be for the July Ride of the Month.
Every contest is held one month in advance. This is because each year, Eat Sleep DSM will be selling calendars with each ROTM’s winners’ photo in the month of the calendar that they won. So if you win the October Ride of the Month contest, your car will be the October picture in the calendar.
In addition to the Ride of the Month contest, there will also be a Ride of the Year (ROTY) contest. Only the 12 ROTM contest winners will be eligible for participation in the ROTY contest. The winner of the ROTY contest will receive a free calendar AND will be on the calendar cover. The winner of each individual Ride of the Month contest winners will receive awards as well. The awards range anywhere from a free Eat Sleep DSM decal to an Eat Sleep DSM T-shirt.
Anybody that currently owns a DSM at the time of any Ride of the Month contest may enter, but, you have to act FAST. The Ride of the Month contest is a first come, first serve basis. Every month, only the first 10 QUALIFIED submissions will be accepted. Once we receive 10 submissions, the submission phase will be complete. Once the submission phase is over, we will add the information you supplied on the submission form and create a submission page for your car. Then, everyone will be able to vote for the car they like the most. The car and driver with the most votes will become that months ROTM winner.
The ROTM submission form consists of the following in which you need to fill out:
- Your Name

- Year, Make, and Model of your Car
- Your Car’s Name (if applicable)
