The ISA Skullcandy Video Contest deadline for submitting videos has been extended until April 15. Due to the large number of videos we have received in the last week, and to make sure everybody has a chance to participate in the event, we decided to give procrastinators more time.
The video should answer the question, “What does a better surfing future mean to you?” It’s simple to produce; use a webcam to film yourself, create a slideshow, tell a story, do a short fiction film, etc. Remember, you only have 90 seconds of artistic freedom.
It is a free video contest and everybody is invited to participate. There’s a total of over US$ 3,000 in cash and Skullcandy prizes. The top prizes will be awarded to the most-viewed videos and to the ones awarded by the Jury of five editors representing the most prominent online surf websites in the world. Each first-place winner will receive US$ 250 cash and a US$ 200 Skullcandy prize package.
You now have 15 days extra to make your video, so get out there and have fun!
