Announcing the 7th Annual Local GNAR Video Contest


Get your crew together and start stacking those shots because the 7th Annual Local GNAR is back and better than ever!  This year we teamed up with Yobeat to bring you a new judging format, and a whole bunch of new prizes, including the use of the most traveled van in snowboarding, the infamous Rome Van, for three months.

This year the top 8 entries will be judged right on Yobeat.com!  We’ll pick the top 8 videos here at Rome over a 12-pack and some heated debate, and they’ll go head to head on Yobeat until there’s a final 4 vote off.  Winners will be decided 100% by the public.

Know your audience.  People on Yobeat aren’t necessarily looking for giant heli shots of you dropping lines in AK.  They are looking for a solid edit that stoked them out to go ride.  Put some effort in, and keep them boardslides straight.  Also, if you’re able to bribe some of the Yobeat regulars like Jerm, Jerms Mom, or Upstate Mike, making that happen somehow may be a good move.

The snow’s falling, so start filming and you may walk away with one of these prize packs:

First Place:
- $1000 cash
- Use of the Rome Van for 3 months
- 2 Rome Snowboards
- 2 Pairs of Rome Bindings
- 2 Pairs of Rome Boots

Second Place:
- 2 Rome Snowboards
- 2 Pairs of Rome Bindings
- 2 Pairs of Rome Boots

Third Place:
- 1 Rome Snowboard
- 1 Pair of Rome Bindings
- 1 Pair of Rome Boots

Remember to keep your edits to 3 minutes or less, and make sure that your entries are sent in to Rome by June 16th. Also make sure all videos are in Quicktime format (that’s .mp4 or .mov for you computer nerds) and be sure to download, fill out, and include this form with your entry: Release Form – Local GNAR 2013
