“Snowboarding is a sport with creativity at its heart. Do you have what it takes to capture snowboarding culture in a new and unexpected way? We’re looking for the best creative rookies out there to show us their passion. In return we’ll arm you with a unique opportunity to show us what you’re made of. We can’t wait to shine a light on your creative mastery. The adventure starts here.” - Stuart Wells, Nokia
This awesome opportunity is open to all talented creatives who have the skills to capture the attitude and energy of this far-out lifestyle! And all you have to do is upload your own original piece of work; this can be in the form of a short film (up to 5 minutes) a photograph or design work.
