G3 Skigraphiks Winner + More Chances to Win
Calling all creative skiers out there. G3 just awarded another winner in our G3 Skigraphiks contest, sending another lucky skier home with a free pair of skis with their custom design on it. There's still 2 more chances to win, so get in there while you can.
“The Watcher” by Kathryn Whiteside of Revelstoke, BC was chosen this week as the winning design for the second round of G3’s Skigraphiks Contest. The design will be available for the public to purchase on G3’s Saint ski through online retailer MountainGear.com – limited quantities only. The second of four month-long competitions wrapped up in October and the third competition, in partnership with Bent Gate Mountaineering, will continue through the month of November.
The SkiGraphiks competition, which has two more segments between now and December 31, encourages people to submit their graphic designs for a ski via the G3 Skigraphiks web site. The top four designs are produced in limited-edition G3 skis and are available for the public to buy through four online retailers. A grand-prize winner will be chosen once the final competition is completed.
British Columbia-based graphic designer Kathryn Whiteside was inspired to create the winning design as an answer to all the negativity that is happening in the world right now. According to the winner, “the word ‘Saint’ inspires hope and lets us focus on something greater than us. Even with all that is going on in the world right now, I think it’s safe to say that there is always someone or something watching out for you.”
To depict the idea of being watched over, Whiteside used an image of owl eyes from an owl she saw at the top of Mount Revelstoke, near her home in interior British Columbia, this summer.
Kathryn may have claimed round 2, but there's still two more chances to win. The third round picked up on November 1 and you have until November 30 to submit a new design, this time for G3’s Zen Oxide ski. That limited-edition ski will be sold exclusively through BentGate.com. Come up with an awesome design, submit it at www.g3skigraphiks.com, then spread the good word. It's that easy.
At the end of the contest, one of the designs will be chosen as Grand Prize winner by G3. The grand-prize winner, chosen two weeks after the last contest ends on December 31, will receive a ski package valued at over $1,400. The package will include a pair of skis with their winning top-sheet graphic, as well as G3 skins and G3 bindings. The skis will be shipped between six and twelve weeks after announcing each winner.
The creativity to date has been really impressive, and we can't wait to see what everyone else comes up with. Good luck.
