CONTEST BREAKDOWN

Ever dreamed of becoming a ski or snowboard movie star? The 8th Annual 2017 Teton Gravity Research Grom Contest will make that dream a reality for one lucky participant. Groms 17 years of age or younger may submit up to one ski or snowboard edit for a chance to film with us during the 2017/2018 season and have an edit of their footage shown before our 2017 film tour. A monthly prize pack from our brand partners will be rewarded to the monthly top ski and snowboard edit. A TGR Swag Pack will also be awarded to a weekly top ski or snowboard teaser submitted to Instagram with the #TGRGROMCOMP. A committee of TGR staff members will choose the winners primarily based on quality of action and level of riding. Facebook likes will not influence judging but may help get your video noticed.

JUDGES AND CRITERIA

Teton Gravity Research athletes ,staff and production team members will review the videos and pick the first place and grand prize winners. Members of the TGR production team will choose the weekly winners.

Quality of action and level of riding are the main deciding factors. A tight edit with your best footage will probably score better with the judges. Do not make them wait through your B shots to see your A shots. Length of video is not a deciding factor. We need to see enough to see your skills. A tight 2 minute edit will usually be more impressive than a loose 3 minute edit.

All decisions by TGR are final. TGR reserves the right to make any changes to the format, rules, and submission requirements at anytime during the contest.
