Dudes and Dudettes. Shreds and Shredders: Your chance to be Chosen is here.
After just one week, The Nike “Chosen” Contest is alive and kicking with 95 crews from the US and 13 from Canada already registered and ready to rock. It’s high time you stop talking and start taking action to get your crew noticed, and ultimately, Chosen.
The rules are simple. Gather a crew of two- four riding buddies, register on the Nike Chosen site, upload photos and edits that best exemplify your crew and start hyping how awesome you are to Facebook and all of your social network friends. You have between now and February 15th to generate as big of a buzz as possible to get your crew “Noticed” and to move onto Round 2.
On February 17th, the top 9 crews out of all of the global entrants will be selected and voted on throughout February 21st- March 10th. Then the three crews with the most “Likes” and surrounding hype will move into the final Chosen Session (held in Austria!), for the ultimate chance to be Chosen.
These three crews will earn an all expense-paid trip to the big event where they will have four days to shoot an edit that best captures why they should be Nike’s Chosen. Scotty Lago, Danny Kass and other Nike pros will judge each submission and will announce the lucky winners on April 1st. The winning crew will receive a boatload of cash, custom Nike goods, and the chance to travel and shred the globe like a true Nike Pro.
If all this sounds perfect for you and your gang, then get over to the Nike Chosen page and register. You’ll only be a week behind Knife Show Inc, Jupiter People, Mystery District, and USC Ski & Snowboard which are just a few of the crews buzzing already.
We caught up with Abe Kislevitz from USC Ski & Snowboard and asked why his crew is amped on being apart of Nike’s Chosen.
Abe said, We’re stoked about the Chosen contest because it gives us a chance to showcase our skills to a broader audience. We’ve been a dedicated film/shred crew for over 4 years and have grown a huge fan base, not because of our pro ski/board skills but for inspiring people to get out and do the same. No fancy cameras or film crews- We capture the genuine radness that is shredding with your friends and aspire to be role models for anyone and everyone that wants to do the same. It’s awesome to be apart of the contest and to be up there with some big names, people we looked up to when we were starting out – Knife Show to name one – and we’re showing up with our own zest and creativity.
The chance is here. The time is now. Rally your crew and be Chosen.
