The first mission of the BURN SNOWPARK RALLY 2011 was closed last Monday. Since then, the judges have rifled through the wide range of creative and inspiring pictures and announced their favourites: after a tough decision, the high-carat expert jury consisting of Völkl team riders and pro photographers Lorenz Holder, Sami Tuoriniemi and Klaus Polzer voted “Indy Tailbone“ by photographer Florian Model and rider Christoph Schwarz best snowboard pic. It offered the nicest solution to the mission “natural obstacle”, the jury stated: “The picture has an extremely good image layout. The photographer solved the difficult backlight situation very well. The rider still has contours, and the light effects are done in a very stylish way.”
Together with the winners of the other two missions, both crews will be invited to the end-of-season Burn Snowpark Rally finals in Leogang, Austria, from April 7 to 10 2011. There, they will accomplish the winter’s last mission together with some Völkl pro riders and professional photographers. The victorious crews will join the Völkl pros at the All Inclusive Völkl Team Week 2011. Additionally, there’s a load of non-cash prizes up for grabs.
The second mission will end on February 17 2011. After that, the last mission will be proclaimed. Check the best pictures of mission #1 and get further information from www.snowparkrally.com!
