YoBeat's Photo Battle Set to Kick Off

We like YoBeat. So we’ll post their corpo-PR, with links and all! It’s a long un, but can be summed up like this – go to YoBeat from Jan 11, vote for your favourite shots, and you help the shooters win shit. Here’s the long-winded version…

Photographers and photography enthusiasts alike, mark your calendars for January 11, 2011, which will kick off the second annual Yobeat
Firing Squad Champions Battle. Each week in the YoBeat Firing Squad, two photos battle for supremacy, and a champion emerges based on your votes. Only a select few survive the Firing Squad long enough to be retired as four-week champions, and for them, we have this annual battle with grand prizes from Buysnow.com, Buyskateshoes.com, GoPro and High Cascade Snowboard Camp.

This year, the eight inducted photos will once again be subjected to Yobeat reader votes and in one-months time, one talented photographer will walk away with the grand prize, a Session at High Cascade Photo Workshop and a GoPro HD Hero Camera! But that’s not all! This year, we’ve decided to make things a little more interesting and also award prizes for the top snow and skate photos individually from Buysnow.com and Buyskateshoes.com, respectively.

The Firing Squad Champions battle will go something like this: In week one, the three skateboard photos that went the distance battle to crown a skate champion. That photographer will receive a $150 gift certificate from Buyskateshoes.com and be eligible for the final battle. In week two, it’s the five snowboard photos turn. This time the photographer with the most votes will receive a $150 Gift Certificate good for anything at Buysnow.com. Finally, the top skate photo and snowboard photo will do ultimate battle for the Grand Prize: a session at the High Cascade Photo Workshop and an HD Hero Camera from GoPro. As an added bonus, Yobeat will also take the winning photographer for a steak dinner at the Acropolis while they are in Oregon for camp, August 5-10.*

Check out all the eligible photos in the Yobeat Champions Gallery and be sure to check Yobeat.com on 1.11.11 when the voting begins!
