April 16, 2003 – Portland, Ore. — Premier Snowskate, the original and authentic manufacturer of quality snowskates, recently launched a ‘Short Video Contest’ on its website, www.premiersnowsk8.com. After receiving hundreds of initial entries, Premier Snowskate founder and owner Andy Wolf, along with the rest of his staff, narrowed down the selection to the ten best finalists. Log on to www.premiersnowsk8.com today to view the video clips sent in from snowskaters across the country and vote for your favorite clip. The Short Video Contest ends May 9th and the winner will be determined by the results from the poll on the Premier Snowskate website.

“Originally we were only going to choose five finalists for visitors to vote on, but because we received such a tremendous response and the artistic value and quality of the video clips were so great, we decided to up the number of finalists to ten,” says Andy Wolf, founder and owner of Premier Snowskate. “The overwhelming response is a testament to the 1.2 million hits per month we receive on our website and all the Premier fans out there who consistently contribute photos, videos and more to our site.”

The winner of the Short Video Contest will not only receive new snowskates and T-shirts from Premier Snowskate but also a special prize package donated by Newrider Publishing including books on Real World digital video, Premiere 6.5 fundamentals, Final Cut Pro for Avid Editors, Editing Techniques with Final Cut Pro, and Cinematography and Directing.

Premier Snowskate, the original snowskate manufacturer, launched in 1998. A snowskate, a board that is slightly wider and longer than a skateboard, is made of plastic or wood with a channeled base for stability and tracking and a foam topsheet for grip. Snowskates combines the design, physics and feeling of skateboarding and snowboarding and are for use on snow-covered sled hills, snowskate parks, or even right in the backyard. Premier Snowskates are currently available in specialty snow/skate shops worldwide and in select mail-order catalogs. Log on to www.premiersnowsk8.com for more information.
