The second mission of the Völkl Snowpark Rally has been accomplished and the winners picked. Our photo editor Sami went through countless submitted pictures to choose the ten best images about a “Spray in the Park”.
Huh, Snowpark Rally? Alright, we have a little recap for you.
The Rally features three different missions throughout the winter. You can choose which mission you want to take part in. First you get a video mission briefing from a Völkl team rider. Next you round up your crew and come up with an original idea. Then you head to your favourite snowpark. Take a picture, the more creative the better and upload it to the Snowpark Rally website.
Each mission has to be accomplished and uploaded within the upload periods. The winners of each mission will get an invite to the finals at the Kitzsteinhorn in Austria from 16 to 18 of April 2010 with kick ass prizes up for grabs.
Back to the second mission: Many of the submitted pictures did not stick to the briefing: They showed some great sprays and a lot of creativity, but the action was not shot in a park. However, Sami still managed to find a lot of outstanding shots.
Here’s his comment on the best image: ”In the winning shot the photographer captured the action in the right moment and you can see a nice big spray fly out. Well done! Also, the style of the rider is spot on.” We’d like to add that the shot shows perfectly what snowboarding is all about: Having fun and making the most of what you have!
Now watch the brief, gather your crew, get a camera and fulfill Mission No. 3! Sami can’t wait to get more of your submissions.
