Update: Subaru Cup Video Remix Contest - winner announced!

Subaru is once again the title sponsor of America's largest state mountain bike racing series. Over 8 years, Subaru has been a wonderful partner and has enabled WORS to bring safe, fun, friendly mountain bike competition to as many people as possible. In celebration of Subaru's continued support for the WORS Series and the Subaru Cup, WORS announces the 2011 Subaru Cup Video Remix contest. Although we did not receive the required eight entries, the videos were of such consistently high quality that we are ready to award the $1400 prize package. Although it was a difficult decision, we believe one entry in particular best captured the spirit and breadth of experiences at the 2010 event in a carefully crafted 2-minute remix. And the winner is: Martin Tank II. We hope you'll watch and enjoy his video below. Marty wins a prize package from WORS sponsors to be presented in person at the awards ceremony at WORS # 2: Prize Package: in addition to undying fame, renown and endless bragging rights, the winner will receive a prize package from WORS valued at over $1400. Field size requirement! Please note - in order for the prize to be awarded, a total of no less than 8 individual entries must be received by WORS by the deadline. The package will include:
  • a $700+ Fox racing fork as seen on page 8 of the WORS Handbook. The winner will have the choice of a Fox 32 Float RLC or 32 Float 29er RLC.
  • a Kinetic trainer package, including trainer, training block and special tires (page 77 of the WORS Handbook).
  • Ryders eyeware (ad on page 10 of the WORS Handbook)
  • a healthy energy package including products from WORS Sponsors HoneyStinger (page 12) and FRS.
Last year at the Subaru Cup, presented by Trek, WORS Photographers and Videographers outdid themselves, capturing the action with thousands of great photos and dozens of exciting video clips. Outstanding photos taken by WORS Photographers at the Subaru Cup have been featured ever since at USA Cycling and in national media reports of race results and rider profiles. For the Subaru Cup Video Remix contest, we asked you to combine these great videos and photos with your own unique style and creativity and remix them into a great 2-minute preview of the Subaru Cup. The winning video will capture the excitement of the races, the family-friendly atmosphere, and the near-perfect day we enjoyed at Nordic Mountain in 2010. Check out other outstanding entries at our Subaru Cup video album, here! Details of the content: (NOTE: the contest is now closed) Video clips to be used for the remixes are available for preview in our album at Vimeo, here. We will be accepting additional video clips through the end of the week (submission details below). If you have video clips - please submit them through our easy upload process. Every video clip that is included in the Subaru Cup album will have the chance at the video submission raffle prize - a new 2011 WORS Team Kit. Subaru Cup photos can be previewed and downloaded at Flickr, and we'll be posting a special set of "favorites" for easy download at the WORS FTP site by the end of the week. The rules: Each video will be judged on the strength of it's ability to include the necessary elements (below) with style, excitement, humor and fun. Any video or image element can be used. Any audio clip, voice-over or music can be included. All WORS Videos and Photos must be credited! We suggest that this be done in a "credits" section at the end of the video. The audience for your video Remix will be a wide range of viewers, including spectators who may not be familiar with mountain bike racing, family members and relatives of racers, Pro mountain bike racers, and amateur xc and downhill riders. The emphasis and tone should be on fun and the excellence of amateur racing at WORS. The emphasis should not be on how "hardcore" mountain bike racing is. About WORS: Remember that WORS races are not just for the highly trained and talented. Mountain bike racing at WORS is a great physical activity that can add to your health and quality of life. WORS is as much about fun, shared experiences and making new friends as it is about the racing. WORS is open to all and welcomes new female and male participants of all ages and athletic abilities. The winning video will accurately reflect these important values of the WORS Series, and combine them with the added excitement of the USA Cycling Pro XCT Series event. The video should also reflect the value WORS places upon the participation by our outstanding sponsors. None of this would be possible without them, especially the support of WORS Title Sponsor, Subaru and Subaru Cup presenting sponsor, Trek. All video clips and favorite Subaru Cup photos are available for quick, easy download at the WORS FTP site. For instruction to access the site, check here. We will continue to add video clips through the end of the week (3/31/11). The edited remix video should not be much longer than 2 minutes in total length. Video clips will be posted as submitted to WORS Vimeo and Facebook. All entries must be submitted before Wednesday, April 27. Submit by uploading the the WORS FTP site, and sending an email to teamwors@gmail.com with your contact information, and any additional info about your video. Please also indicate whether you are interested in being considered for the Official WORS Videographer position on Team WORS.
