"TransWorld SNOWboarding is starting this season off with a bang! The upcoming September issue features the all-new Team Shoot Out, an event focused on the creative side of snowboarding. TransWorld Editor-in-Chief Annie Fast says, “We came up with the Team Shoot Out as a way to challenge riders, photographers, and park builders to creatively progress snowboarding and to capture that progression-the success has been mind-blowing!” This past winter, four of the best teams in snowboarding- Forum, Burton, Rome, and DC-secretly battled it out at four different resorts, pushing to shoot the best photos and video possible in one week’s time. The prize: the cover shot on the September issue of the mag. The teams worked with experts from Snow Park Technologies to design the ultimate park, photographers were challenged to shoot the best photographs, and videographers to film and edit the best videos, which were then submitted to TransWorld this spring.
The results of this first-annual event surpassed all expectations. Director of Photography Nick Hamilton says, “Every team submitted cover-worthy photos-coming from an event, that is pretty amazing.” On top of that, the incredible Shoot Out video will be available for download on iTunes starting July 27.
