For the entire month of April, Mammoth Mountain will be accepting entries for the Facebook Foto Fest. All you have to do to enter is post a picture to the wall of the Mammoth Unbound Facebook, and share it with your friends to rack up the likes. Get enough thumbs-ups and you'll earn your way into the final round, along with big-time exposure on MammothUnbound.com
The Foto Fest rewards entrants with more than just fame and recognition though. Winners of each category will receive prize packs full of goodies from brands like RVCA, Volcom, Oakley and Mammoth, and the best of the best will receive signed prints from snowboarding photography legends like Joel Muzzey and Embry Rucker.
The contest is meant to provide a platform for both aspiring photographers as well as innovative Instagrammers. "There's so much photographic talent out there in so many different formats, that we just wanted to give the kids a chance to show off their skills," said Mammoth Mountain Brand Content Manager Eric Meyers. "There aren't even any rules, just shoot for the win!"
Mammoth Mountain has received over 80 inches of snow during the last month, with the consequent coverage allowing photographers to explore the entire mountain in search of the winning shot, as well as any of the eight terrain parks and two halfpipes currently open at Mammoth
There's no limit to how many photos you can submit, and the contest features several categories; Most Hipster, Most Gangster, Most Random, and Best Action. The best way to get noticed is to hashtag which category you're aiming for, share it with your friends, and bully them into clicking that like button.
