SNOW: Team Shoot Out 2012 Winners

August 10, 2012

TransWorld SNOWboarding Announces Team Shoot Out 2012 Winners

For the first time in Team Shoot Out's four year history, the TransWorld SNOWboarding readers voted on this year's winning teams. The event, which was comprised of four teams of outerwear brands: Burton AK, Nike, Oakley, and Special Blend, was held over 10 consecutive days. After each team submitted their best in photography and video, it was up to the readers to decide the winners.

Over a period of three weeks, voting was open online on, first, rolling out with the four TransWorld SNOWboarding cover shots (July 16), then the videos (July 23), and finally, the photo galleries (July 30).

"For this year's event, we really wanted to involve our loyal readers," stated TransWorld SNOWboarding Content Director Nick Hamilton. "It was cool to see the votes stack up each week as our readers voted and shared their picks across the social media outlets."
