Contest2014

Win up to $1,000 by showing us your favourite aspects of Silver Star…
Through the Eyes of…

Well…anyone. Have fun. Be creative. Be original. And show us a side of Silver Star we maybe haven’t seen before.

Perhaps you’d like to dress up like your favourite celebrity, or show us what Silver Star might be like from the eyes of your favourite stuffed animal or pet. You get the idea.

It’s a contest like no other. Simply choose your story, choose the character(s), and show us #MyMtn in your own unique way.  We’d like to see your photos and/or videos (see guidelines for submission below).

Prizes will be awarded monthly by our panel of judges for the best photos and videos with an overall Grand Prize Winner selected at the end of this crazy contest.

And just to get your creative juices flowing, here’s our very own small take on it…

Judging

All entries will be judged and scored based on:

  1. 30% Theme – how well it fits the theme of the contest.
  2. 30% Creativity – how original and creative the submission is.
  3. 20% Popularity – how many “likes” did your submission get on our contest Facebook page and/or “favourites” on our Twitter account.
  4. 20% Opinion –  our panel of judges will award points based on their own personal likes/dislikes.

♦ Prizes

Grand Prize:
A grand prize winner will be selected on April 1st, 2014. The winner may choose either a $1,000 Silver Star Gift Card or a 2014/15 Adult Season Pass. And of course, bragging rights and some grand notoriety are a given.
