Enter as many times as you like. Each month, from September to November, a ‘People’s Choice’ winner will be awarded a gear prize based on the popularity of their design. At the end of the contest, judges from Backcountry Magazine and G3 will select a Grand Prize winner to receive their own custom skis and more schwag.
Contest Timing - Contest opens September 1, 2012 and closes 5 p.m. PST on Nov 30, 2012..
Backcountry Magazine is excited to be the exclusive partner in this year's Skigraphiks contest, and will help make your winning skis a reality. G3 will be producing a limited run of the winner's custom skis to be awarded at Backcountry Magazine events throughout the season.
To be considered a valid entry you must use the Backcountry Magazine logo in your design, which you will download along with the template.
Download the Design Package below for logos, instructions and the die-line template to use when designing your graphic. When finished, save your original art file to your personal computer as a .eps file using Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop or a similar graphics application. You’ll upload your artwork (instructions below) as a separate, compressed version, but you must save the high-resolution, original version in order to build your custom skis if you’re declared a winner.Download the Design Package
Once you've completed your design, save/export it 'for the web' so that you have a version of your design that meets the following requirements:

All submissions will be moderated by G3 and then posted for the public to view and vote on. Be sure send the www.skigraphiks.com link to all your friends and encourage them to post a comment and rate your entry! It may win you the monthly 'People's Choice' Prize, and will also get the judges attention for the Grand Prize.
You can enter as many times as you like, but only entries received before the monthly deadlines will be considered for that month's 'People's Choice' prize.
