Your Turn Photo Contest: Send It winner announced

This fourth contest of the Your Turn Photo Contest series was assigned the theme of “Send It.” We asked photographers to submit their standout images that relate to snowboarders going beyond the norm. The top images are above

Round four of the Your Turn Photo Contest has wrapped up. It’s now time to select the winner for the theme “Send It” so we can announce the finalists for the grand finale portfolio battle. It’s been an amazing series for the Your Turn Photo Contest. We received more submissions than ever before and the quality of the images from these new photographers has pushed the bar further than the two other seasons we’ve run this contest.

The Your Turn Photo Contest gives an opportunity for new photographers to share their best images on TWSNOW.com, gaining their first editorial exposure, and to win prizes.  This year, we’ve presented a series of four themed photo contests, each one having a prize package of a Burton photo backpackCeltek gloves, and radio slaves from Pocket Wizard. At the end of the themed contest, the winner of each will present a collection of their favorite images for a portfolio battle. The grand-prize winner of the battle will receive food, lodging, and a spot in the High Cascade’s Photo Workshop, headed by TransWorld senior photographer Andy Wright. A very exclusive opportunity!
