As presenter of the Burton European Open and the Burton US Open, the MINI Space Team has taken the opportunity to challenge snowboard journalists to capture the creativity of the sport in no other way than a MINI Space competition.
Contenders are challenged to creatively cover the events of the Burton US Open in Vail Colorado during the next week.
The winner of the MINI Media Award will be voted by MINI Space visitors.
Votes will be casted from March 13, 2013 to March 27, 2013.
The kicker – even the votes will be entered into a competition.
Creatively comment to reinforce your vote and to demonstrate your support for your favorite article and the sport of snowboarding.
The producers of the three most creative comments will receive a limited edition Burton snowboard.
And, by limited edition, we mean limited edition.
These Burton snowboards have been custom-designed by snowboard photographer Tobias “Ludschi” Ludescher and off-piste pro rider Lukas Goller, also known as Lu&Lu.
Lu&Lu of the PirateArtCrew met in 2004 and have been creating masterpieces on all types of mediums from canvas to cars ever since.
Lu&Lu spent three days in a glass pod customizing a MINI Countryman to reflect the spirit of the Burton European Open scene in Laax Switzerland.
Featuring the old man of the mountain on its hood and a mountain panorama, Lu&Lu titled the MINI Countryman RE: LAAX.
The work of the alpine artists, as they call themselves, leaked onto three Burton snowboards that you could potentially call your own.
Local Pennsylvania dealership, MINI of Pittsburgh, is excited to witness the creativity inspired by the MINI-sponsored Burton US Open.
