ARE YOU READY! It's time to enter Swany’s Outdoor Adventure Video Contest for a chance to win cool prizes, ranging from great Swany gloves to even bigger items that we'll be announcing soon. Here’s all you have to do:
Make a cool outdoor winter adventure video: It could be a ski or snowboard trick, a visit to the backcounty for Telemark skiing, or anything that takes us into the outdoors. We don’t need an epic: 30 seconds is just fine. Have you already made a video? Enter that. Want the inside track? The judges might give you extra credit for including Swany gloves.
Upload your video to the web (YouTube, Vimeo, etc.): If you haven't already uploaded videos to YouTube or another video site, register at one you like and upload your contest video. Or post it to your blog or another public area on the web.
Enter: E-mail the URL of your video to email@example.com. In the "Subject" line, write "Video Contest." In the body of the e-mail include your name, home town, age and a sentence describing where the video was shot.
Winners’ notification: Swany will select weekly and monthly winners and notify them via the e-mail address used to enter your video.
Prizes: Weekly winners will be awarded one pair of Swany gloves or mittens. The monthly winner will awarded a bigger prize (to be announced). In addition, we’ll highlight your video on this page for the whole world to see.
Who's eligible: Everyone. Unless you work for Swany America.
Take a look at last year's winners to get a feel for what you need to do.
Video Contest Winner - Streaked Wall Zion National Park
Nate Brown of Wilson, Wyo., calls himself an "all-around fun hog." But it also takes discipline and talent to climb Streaked Wall at Zion National Park. Add it up and he's our third winner in the Outdoor Adventure Video Contest.
Video Contest Winner - Revelstoke, British Columbia
Andrew Emmerson and some friends became the fourth winners in Swany's Outdoor Adventure Video Contest by tearing it up in Revelstoke, British Columbia. Watch them explore the backcountry bowls (North Bowl, South Bowl, Montana Bowl and Kokanee Bowl) and cat skiing areas. They're not afraid to fall, these guys!
Video Contest Winner - MMSC Freestyle Team: First Trick Rail Jam!
Paolo Rossi and Sam Rogers of Huntington, Vt., are the fifth winners in Swany's Outdoor Adventure Video Contest for this fun video of the First Trick Rail Jam at Stowe Mountain in December. Watch 'em go!
Video Contest Winner -Snowboarding at Ruby Hill (HD)
Peter Batty is proof you can have an outdoor adventure in the heart of the city in this video, the sixth winner in the Swany Outdoor Adventure Video Contest, which shows Peter and his family tearing it up at Ruby Hill Rail Yard in the heart of Denver
Video Contest Winner - Zach Rickenbach at Squaw Valley
This entertaining video from Zach Rickenbach shows that sometimes all it takes is a little powder to make a great video. Zach and a friend took advantage of some early season powder at Squaw Valley to tear it up, while dodging a variety of boulders. Big fun, and the seventh winner in the Swany Gloves Outdoor Adventure Video Contest.
Video Contest Winner - Ski Philly
Here's proof the recent East Coast snowstorms were a good thing. Jake Krolick of Philadelphia saw more than a lot of shoveling, he saw an opportunity. "Ski Philly" is a funny video that finds him skiing the local landmark made famous in "Rocky." Jake's the eighth winner in the Swany Gloves Outdoor Adventure Video Contest. And as a monthly winner, he'll get a helmet cam.
