Ready – steady – go: the Snowpark Rally enters its second season and again, everyone is invited to take part! It’s fun, it’s free and you can win cool stuff…
Per video message, Völkl team riders send you on the first of three missions of the winter. At the snow park of your choice, you can interpret the missions as creatively as possible, take some cool shots and upload the result to www.snowparkrally.com. Originality and creativity are more important than technical photo skills!
The winners of each mission will be invited to the finals at the Kitzsteinhorn where they will be rewarded with many great prizes. The Snowpark Rally is a contest for all snowboard crews who love to spend the winter in snow parks and take a camera along.
The procedure is simple: first of all, you have to get your first mission from www.snowparkrally.com where Völkl snowboarder Chris Kröll (AUT) will tell you what to do. Then, you visit the snow park of your choice and live out your creativity by looking for inventive motifs and taking shots that comply with the mission. Upload the pics to the Snowpark Rally website – mission accomplished!
It doesn’t matter if you use an SLR or a simple digicam, everything is allowed. The Snowpark Rally is not about taking perfect pictures like the pro photographers do but about realizing an exceptional idea!
The first mission will end on the 17th of January, 2010. After that, the further two missions will be proclaimed one after another. An expert jury of Völkl riders and professional photographers will judge the uploaded pictures. Each mission’s winning crew will be invited to the big end-of-season Snowpark Rally finals in Austria.
www.onebigpark.at will host the snowboarding finals at Salzburg Country’s Kitzsteinhorn from the 16th to the 18th of April 2010. There, the crews will accomplish the winter’s last mission together with some Völkl pro riders and some professional photographers. The victorious crews will join the Völkl pros at the All Inclusive Völkl Team Week 2010. Additionally, there’s a load of non-cash prizes and lift tickets up for grabs.
An extra clou at the finals will be the free BagJump for everyone. The partner regions One Big Park and Tyrol will allocate a gigantic airbag for a whole day for free. Riders of all skill levels will have the opportunity to push their level without the risk of injury. Coaches and photographers will also be at place.
