Burton has teamed up with the crowd-sourced design website, “Blank You Very Much”, to give people the opportunity to create their own Burton board graphic. Here’s how it’s going to work:
The contest will tap into the creative community of “Blank You Very Much” consisting of nearly twenty thousand artists, designers, and fans, giving them the opportunity to showcase their designs in the BYVM gallery. The contest will run until the end of November when the community will vote on the top 20 designers. Once the designers are chosen, selected Burton dealers will vote and narrow the field to the top ten designs. From there, the top designs will be built onto actual snowboards and then presented to the final judges, Burton pro riders Danny Davis and Mark Sollors, who will hand pick the two finalists. The winning graphics will be used on Burton boards for the 2014 production season.
