Burton Snowboards has teamed up with Blank You Very Much for their 2015 ‘Backyard Project’ contest — your chance to design a new snowboard graphic that will be featured in Burton Snowboards’ limited edition 2015 ‘Backyard Project’ collection. Jussi Oksanen, Kimmy Fasani, and Jeremy Jones will each be judging designs created for their respective models, making the final decision after public voting narrows down the submissions to the top 50 entries. The grand prize finalist for each model will earn a $2,500 cash prize, plus the chance to see their graphic produced as part of Burton’s limited edition 2015 ‘Backyard Collection,’ which will sell in select snowboard shops across the country. The deadline to submit your design is October 31, 2013, so now’s the time to make it happen!

Check out Blank You Very Much for more details, and to submit your design!

Check out a few of the submissions in the running so far:

“I’m liking retro tourism posters, or high-contrast photos, and original patterns with bold logos and lettering.” — Jussi Oksanen, judge for The Showdog

showdog “Hero” — Submitted by graPHico

“No kid’s drawings, naked chicks, or alcohol bottles. I¹m looking for old school oil cans, garage sign art with hand painted lettering, random things that don’t go together.” — Jeremy Jones, judge for The Street Sweeper

street sweeoer “Deer_King”— Submitted by Acid_system

“I¹d like something a little spicy and not girly graphic that breaks the mold for what¹s normally seen on women’s products.” — Kimmy Fasani, judge for The Tattletale

tattletale “Miss Tattleocalypse” — Submitted by LanaRaeDesigns
