POW/Venture Art Contest Winner


The winner of the Venture/Protect Our Winters board graphic contest is “Unknown Future” by Julie Boake. Congratulations Julie!

Our panel of judges liked the clean look of Julie’s design, as well as its illustration of the role that mountains play in the water cycle.


Julie will take home the grand prize – a brand new Venture deck emblazoned with her very own artwork. These limited edition POW boards will be available for sale this fall and a portion of the proceeds will be donated to Protect Our Winters. Stay tuned for details!

The runner up, Aggie Drelich Smith’s “Modern Threat” wins a 09/10 Venture board and the top ten contestants will receive Venture swag as prizes.

Many thanks to all the participants who put their time, energy and creativity into their designs!
