Attention, design-types. The TTR have just kicked off their second annual trophy design contest where one of you will be able to have your concept featured on the TTR World Tour trophy that’s intensely coveted by the finest riders on the planet.
Swatch and the TTR World Snowboard Tour kicked off the second edition of the Art Rules Design Contest today, offering anyone with a creative mind a chance to make a mark within design and snowboard communities around the globe. Any and all artists are invited to submit a graphic design to be applied to the 2011/2012 TTR World Tour Champion trophy. The trophy itself was sculpted by renowned “Coarse” designer Mark Landwehr, and is one of the most prestigious and respected awards a snowboard athlete can obtain in their careers. Designers can submit their artwork beginning today at www.artrules.swatch.com and the contest will run until April 15th, 2011.
In addition to the recognition and glory that comes along with being the designer of this unique “Oscar of Snowboarding”, the winner of the Art Rules competition will also receive a two week trip to Shanghai, China, including transportation and accommodation, plus pocket cash. Everyone is invited to participate! The designs will be judged by a critical jury of five, consisting of the Swatch President Arlette-Elsa Emch, the legendary snowboarder David Benedek, the President of the TTR Reto Lamm, Fashion Designer Uma Wang, and one more expert to be announced soon.
The winner will be presented at the Swatch Art Rules Night on the 27th of May 2011, in Stockholm, Sweden. The competition is now open and ends on April 15th, 2011. The rules and details for submissions can be found on www.artrules.swatch.com , so get your colors out and start designing!
