Top winter destination initiates online photo competition giving the winner a chance to be cast in a personalized full-scale video production
For Immediate Release. Sun Peaks, BC (November 17, 2010) – Sun Peaks Resort is excited to announce the sequel to its successful Snow Bum competition last year, Snow Bum 2: The Snapshot. Aspiring snow bums from around the world are invited to take a one-of-a-kind picture that shows off their enthusiasm for winter – a ‘casting’ photo if you will. The prize for best photo - a trip to Sun Peaks for the winner, where a renowned videographer will accompany them onto the slopes to film their very own exclusive winter-themed video!
Kevin Hagell from Kaizen Visuals will spend a day with you and your friends, filming everything from shredding through epic powder, making that huge jump off the slopes, or chilling out at après. Kaizen Visuals produced the Sun Peaks Promotional Winter Video. This is a once –in-a-lifetime chance for a lucky person to have their love of winter captured on video by a film producer. The winner and their friends will stay six nights at one of Sun Peaks’ exclusive resort properties. There will also be secondary prize for most popular (most-voted for) photo as contestants will be rewarded based on how many votes they get on their photo, by promoting their entry through social media sites such as Facebook and Twitter.
“Since Snow Bum was such a success last year, we wanted this year’s contest to be even more accessible to participants across the globe,” explains Christopher Nicolson, President of Tourism Sun Peaks. “A picture is worth a thousand words, and having people show us why they love winter through their lenses is a great way to celebrate the snow season. We anticipate lots of creative and unique shots will be shared with the world.”
