That’s right, after a long night of drinking, viewing and deliberation we have come to a decision on the results of the first Europeskate “Raise The Dead” skateboard video contest! The competition was tough and we did enjoy watching what you put together for us. And next time, tell your friends to add their comments! That was definitely in the judging criteria. So no further talking, dive in to see who won!
Participants in the contest were suppossed to create their own video, 2 minutes or less in length, no larger than 10 MB of themselves or friends skating. The sky was the limit with the video editing/production/music integration as long as everything was your own work (okay, we sort of closed our eyes for one video with Ugly Duckling music but they actually wrote back to say we could use it!)
The videos were judged by the following criteria:
– video and filming quality
– the level of skateboarding
– innovative spots and skating
– the ratings on the Mpora video platform
– user comments here on Europeskate
– and our own personal judgement!
and here are the results:
1st place: Dave Ford (great stuff, well done Dave!)
2nd place: Gus King (look out for this ripper, 11 years old!)
3rd place: Tim Oberhausen (you’ll have to get your friends some drinks *hehe*)
4th place: Simon Trigell (love those freestyle tricks and boneless one variations – oldest skater prize!)
5th place: Francisco Lima (good skating, nice spots)
and an “honorable mention” to Niall Behan and Sam Watkiss, thanks for entering the contest as well!
