Slam City Skates and Vans return for another round of Summer in the City, which sees them open to the capital’s filming world the chance to put together a skate edit and submit it in the hope of winning some cold, hard cash. Peruse the press release below for more details and check out last year’s top four edits for an idea of how well it went off in 2015 – we imagine this year’s will be just as rad!
To get involved, email firstname.lastname@example.org with your chosen team of six skateboarders and one filmer.
Summer In The City is back! Once again we have teamed up with Vans to make your summer holiday more interesting but this time around we have doubled the prize money! We are also giving away £250 for the best overall trick so commit your best ones to film. Many of you would be out there filming anyway, we just cooked this up as an incentive to make sure you do. If you have made a video before or not make this summer in London count. We are accepting entries to our Summer In The City competition now. Register for your chance to compete, the deadline for registration is July 31st.
The first thing we need you to do is pick a crew of up to 6 skateboarders and 1 filmer. Next email the list of names to email@example.com. Once you have done this you have the whole month of August to go filming in the city of London so get out there and gather the best footage you can. You can use any camera you have access to, everything from phone footage to HD can be submitted.
We expect each team to upload an Instagram teaser for their edit during the filming period. Some of the best Instagram posts will also receive prize money. Having spent the month of August filming you will have two weeks in September to edit your video and submit it. All entries must be submitted by Monday 12th September. All of the video entries will be hosted on our website. Videos will then be judged by a panel selected by Slam and Vans. They will be judged on the standard of skating, filming, editing and creativity. We will then pick the three winning videos which will be screened in the cinema at House Of Vans. There is a pot of £2000 prize money up for grabs so enter now and spend as much time as you can on the city streets this summer.
