Time Is Almost Up For Rome’s Local Gnar Contest

The deadline for entering your edit in the 5th installment of The Local GNAR video contest, and getting your shot at the $1G prize, is drawing near. The Local GNAR is a video contest for locals that celebrates the best parts of snowboarding—hanging with your friends, shredding snowboards, and capturing it on film. It’s not too late to get a crew together, take some sunny park laps, session a favorite local spot, and get it on film. You’ve got a whole month, which is more than enough time to put together a solid edit.

Most crews have already been out there filming all season, so this is your chance to start stockpiling footage if you haven’t already. There is still plenty of time to share your video with the world. We’re not looking for the first quad-cork, or heli-cammed back 7’s off of Valdez spines, however if you have those shots, put ‘em in. We’re just looking for crews that are out having a good time putting a fun video together.

All you need to do is make a short edit (less than 5 minutes) of your crew out snowboarding. The judging is based on a few things. The quality of editing, the effort put into the video, and the tricks play an important factor, but the winning video has always been the one that made us all want to go out and snowboard the most.

That May 15th deadline will be here sooner than you think, so get up, get out, and get some shots.

  • First Place this year will take home $1,000 cash, 2 Rome Artifact Rocker snowboards, 2 pairs of 390 Boss bindings
  • Second Place will be grabbing 2 Rome Artifacts, 2 pairs of 390 bindings and
  • Third Place will be walking away with 2 pairs of 390 bindings and 5 pairs of gloves

Keep your edit to five minutes or less, and make sure that your entries are in by the May 15th deadline. Also make sure all videos are in Quicktime format. For any other questions shoot an email over to ridercouncil@romesnowboards.com
