We know that at Outpost Sunsport, and in Fort Collins in general, we have creative minds that feel passionately about the mountains and winter sports. Well, here is your shot at putting that creativity together with your love of the powder to win big!

The Vail Film Fest in conjunction with Vail Resorts is hosting the EpicMix Ad contest. You could win $10,000 if you create a 30 second ad promoting EpicMix by Feb. 28. A winner will be voted upon socially after judges have selected the top 10.

Epic Mix, if you remember from an earlier blog post, is new for the 2010/2011 ski and ride season at Vail, Beaver Creek, Breckenridge, Keystone and Heavenly.ξ It is a revolutionary technological advancement for the ski industry that can track all your activity on the slopes automatically, while simultaneously uploading the information to your EpicMix dashboard and selected social networking platforms (this means keeping your Twitter followers and Facebook friends in the loop about how much you ride and how hard).

The ads will be judged on creativity and originality, theyξ must adhere to the creative assignment, and they must have an overall appeal. Any of the top 10 videos may be chosen to be used by Vail Resorts for TV or online promotion — so thinking outside of the box is encouraged more than anything- considering what revolutionary technology the ad is supposed to be representing. Your submission should be in commercial form and consistent with the official contest rules.

The EpicMix ad contest rules will show you what format to submit in, what the file needs to be and all the technical details you’ll need to make the best video of all time.

We hope to see some northern Colorado videos created and added into the “mix.”
