:rules: Here are all detailed rules of the Contest and the list of the 7 jurors which will select 2 winners.
The 3rd winner will be chosen by the public (all members of the Forum).


:arrow: PRIZES

There are 3 boards to win, one per category. :D
The model is by default the Extremecarver Gen4, new production 2013-2014. But the winners can get the Dual board if they prefer this model. It’s also possible to get the third new model, but at the condition of paying the difference in price. Of course size/flex can be selected by the winners.
The boards are delivered in European Union and Switzerland for free. Usual shipping costs are asked for other countries because the customs refuse commercial parcels of value 0 €.


:arrow: CATEGORIES
  • Best Riding – Choice of the jury :pray2:
    The award will be given to the whole crew of riders participating in the movie, or to the only rider of the movie if he is alone.
    The prize should be shared with the filmmaker of course.
  • Best Editing or Script – Choice of the jury :pray2:
    The award will be given to the editor of the film. The riders will deserve congratulations too.
  • Public Award – Choice of the public :pray2:
    Everyone in the Forum could vote from 11 to 24 January, 2014, in a poll of the Forum.
    The votes from the new members with 0 post during this period won’t be taken into account.
Based on the number of submissions, if a particularly good movie makes unanimity in the jury, it can win two awards. If there are many submissions, the organizers have the right to add a Special Award (with a 4th board to win of course).

The results will be announced publicly during the dinner of the 11th ExtremeCarving Session, on Saturday 25 January, 2014. The films will be screened during this party.


:arrow: WHO CAN PARTICIPATE ?

Anyone, with the exception of the 7 jurors and organizers, can participate in the Contest.
The Swoard team riders and Swoard EC instructors can appear in the movies only if they carve with other riders. In such cases their riding won’t be taken into account by the jury for the Award of "Best Riding".

Organizers: Patrice and Tali

Jury: Patrice (Switzerland), Tali (Russia/Canada), Arnaud (France), Pietro "H2O" (Italy), Jörg "joemzl" (Germany), Rob (Canada), Peter "yomama" (USA)

For making this jury, the idea was to get 7 members of 7 countries, so there is no favoritism or nationalism. ;-) The chosen persons are some most active moderators of the Forum, some good riders, as well as one girl and 3 persons living on the American continent. :D We wanted diversity!

Public voters: you! :D From 11 to 24 January 2014, check this Forum for voting in a poll.


:arrow: QUESTIONS ?

If you have any question, you can write to contest@swoard.com or ask it in this thread. Along to your comments, some rules could be slightly adjusted if necessary, but in any case we will keep you informed here.


:arrow: WHERE TO WATCH THE SUBMITTED MOVIES ?

We are going to keep an updated list in the Forum with all the submitted movies.
You can submit your movie as soon as possible if you want to share it already, or you can wait till the deadline on 11 January, 2014. At this date, the list will be updated for the last time and the poll for the Public Award will be opened.


Good luck to all participants :!: :silly:
