Tech Deck ‘Design and Build’ competition

There’s still a few weeks left to get your entries in, so if you’ve yet to do so, cast your eyes below then get your creative side out!

Ever thought your local park was missing something? Or thought about what you would change if you could? Maybe you’ve even thought about sessioning that same park with some of the UK’s top skaters? Well Tech Deck are giving you the chance to fulfill all of your wishes with relative ease and a pretty minimal amount of work on your part.

Tech Deck are giving you the opportunity to win a new obstacle for your local skatepark, along with a private session for you and your mates with members of the Vans UK team.

The Tech Deck ‘Design and Build’ competition simply requires you to submit a design for a new obstacle or possible change to your existing park – these can be simple sketches, models or even mashed potato sculptures if you see fit – they will be judged on creative merit, practicality and skateability – so there’s no point in drawing a 30 metre high Mega Jump or something equally as daft!

The top ten designs will then go onto the next stage: You will then need to build a model of your obstacle with the provided Tech Deck goodies, and film a little video section of you and your mates sessioning it. Points will be awarded on the basis of the quality of your obstacle, impressiveness of the tricks performed and any general tomfoolery involved.

Judges are set to include: Marc Churchill, Ben Powell and Nic Powley.

Please send your initial images and any queries via e-mail too: {encode=”” title=””}

Make sure to Include with your entry – Your name and age, the name and location of your chosen park, your contact telephone number and the image of your design. The closing date for the first stage is 30/01/2010, with the finalists notified shortly after.

Get your creative thinking cap on now and start submitting your ideas!
