Round up your crew and get after it this winter because the Your Turn photo contest is the best way for up-and-coming snowboard photographers to have their shots seen by the world.
The first category is now open, giving you a month to shoot and upload your pics to the user generated section of TWSNOW.COM. Just upload your photo and tag the name of the category that you’re entering the photo for. For example, if you wanted to enter for January, you would tag your photo as Riot in the Streets forjudging. Also, make sure to put the photographer name, and the rider name in the caption credit. The winner will be announced on February 1, when the next category will start, with two more categories to follow in March and April. New this year, the winner of each category will go head to head in a portfolio battle, with the TransWorld staff picking the grand-prize winner based on the strongest overall submission.
Prizes include gear from Burton, Celtek, Pocket Wizard, and BlackRapid camera straps. The grand-prize winner gets food, lodging, and a spot in the High Cascade Snowboard Camp Photo Workshop at Mt. Hood, Oregon, headed by TransWorld senior photographer Andy Wright. This is your chance to learn from the pros.
