Blue Tomato's 'Best Urban Shot' returns for the third year running, offering up a creative photo and video competition for all snowboarders and photographers. With a purse of €3000 up for grabs along with heaps of other epic prizes, not to mention the chance to get your shot made into a poster that'll be shipped out within Onboard next season, you'll want to be involved in this...


Building on the undoubted success of last year's Best Urban Shot, this year Blue Tomato are looking to step it up to the next level by going full-Euro. The Best Urban Shot Competition is a chance for all city shredders to get creative and run riot on the rails of their home towns. The only condition is that the shot must be taken in an urban environment, far from parks and mountains. A famous landmark in a European capital would be, for example, the perfect background for your photo or video.

All artwork sent in will be judged by a specialist Blue Tomato Jury with a total of 3,000 € in cash to give out for the most creative photos and videos.

The winners of the Best Snowboard Photo and Best Snowboard Video categories will each receive 750 € cash. Second and third places will get hyped on some sick product from Nitro Snowboarding, GoPro and of course, Blue Tomato!

On top of the great cash prizes, the winner of each category will receive something super special, the likes of which would make pro-riders across the world jealous: A huge serving of media coverage. The snowboarders will have a poster of their winning shot featured in our very own print mag! The last guy to have this was Halldor Helgason, so, you know, like no big deal...
