For the first time, Burton are giving anyone the chance to create a Burton board graphic through a design contest run by ‘Blank You Very Much’. In case you haven’t seen it, check the skinny right here…
This is a killer opportunity for anyone to design a Burton snowboard graphic. Here are the basics on how the program works:
Burton’s friends at Blank You Very Much, a website devoted to crowd-sourced design, are tapping into their creative community of nearly twenty-thousand artists to submit graphic options that will be showcased in their BYVM gallery.
At the end of November, the community will vote and choose the top 20 designers. Burton are encouraging their dealers to sign up to the community so they can see the submissions along the way at www.blankyouverymuch.com.
After the top 20 designers are identified, each of their designs (2 from each) will then be exclusively voted on by selected Burton dealers to narrow the field to 10 top designs.
From there, these 10 boards will be built at Craig’s and brought out to the SIA show where Danny Davis and Mark Sollors will select the two finalists.
Winning graphics will then be used on Burton boards planned for the 2014 production season.
All details are also at www.blankyouverymuch.com if you want to learn more. Only a few days are left to enter the contest, so get your designs in sharpish
