Back again (what, another year has already passed on by??) with the Big Push 2010. If you don’t know what this is then catch up right here with the words from the people running the contest and check out the video introduction plus last year’s winning video edit from the VANS team below.
“This year we have an extra team with I-Path joining last years six. Weâ€™ve also slimmed down the challenges and dropped the specific regions in favour of dividing the UK into North and South to give each team more time and space to simply go out skateboarding.
Each team is tasked with a variety of missions, including 10 obscure tricks for points, a possible three NBD tricks at famous spots in their assigned area (North or South) as well as a highest ollie competition, which will happen on the road.
As with last year, points accrued from completing the challenges set will count for half of each teamâ€™s individual score, with online voting accounting for the rest. Your votes will be added to these pre-existing scores to determine the overall winners â€“ you are voting for your favourite edit â€“ nothing else, so use your vote wisely.
The winning team of this yearâ€™s Big Push will score themselves Â£2000 prize money to share between the participants, as well as the cover of the Christmas mag and internet fame beyond compare.
The Big Push DVD will be cover-mounted on the October issue of Sidewalk, due out in shops on or around the 19th of October.
All the Big Push edits will be online from November 1st to allow those who havenâ€™t seen the magazine to get involved in bigging up their favourite crew of shoe humans. Online voting will close on the 15th of November so donâ€™t hang about.”
