G3 Skigraphiks Competition - closes Feb 14
Everyone who's ever strapped on a pair of skis has looked down at the graphics and wondered if they could design something better. Once again, thanks to Genuine Guide Gear, they have a chance to find out - and potentially win a free pair of the skis they design. Genuine Guide Gear is inviting aspiring and professional designers and artists to submit their designs for a new top sheet on a G3 ski. One winner will be chosen for each of three contest periods: October 15 - November 14; November 15 - December 14; December 15 - January 14; and January 15 - February 14, 2011.
"The SkiGraphiks contest is at full force, and we are excited by the support of the online community" says Scott Duer, G3's Sales Manager. "This year's participation is phenomenal," he continues, "thanks to joining forces with three of our online retail partners and reaching consumers through social networks. SkiGraphiks followers have the chance this year to influence the decision making process and have the opportunity to purchase a winning design from Backcountry.com, Mountain Gear and Bent Gate".
To enter the G3 Ski Graphic Challenge, participants can visit http://www.genuineguidegear.com and click on the SkiGraphiks icon to review details on how to play, submit entries, plus review and vote on all contest submissions. G3 will take the lead from public votes to choose a winner for each contest period. All four winners will be awarded a free pair of G3 skis, printed with their unique graphic. This year's grand prize winner will also receive a full kit from G3 including there winning Graphic Skis, Bindings, Skins, Shovel, and Probe.
"We believe that skiing is a form of artistic expression and inspiration," says Duer, "and the design and graphics of skis is part of that vision. Because our ski production facility enables us to deliver graphic customization, we want to inspire our customers to be creative by giving them the possibility of seeing their personal concept on a pair of G3 skis".
