EVENT: TransWorld SKATEboarding Presents "Dew Tour Shop Showdown"

TransWorld SKATEboarding and Dew Tour have teamed up to host the “Dew Tour Shop Showdown” video contest. The contest will pit 16 of the top skate shops from across America against each other to determine which U.S. skate shop has the best overall team of 2015.  The top two finalist teams will also earn a bevy of prizes, an all-expense paid trip, mass exposure and bragging rights. 
 
The 16 invited shops have been challenged to create and submit a three-minute video edit highlighting their best tricks, which will be posted to TWSkate.com and bracketed against each other. The top two finalists, determined through a blend of audience voting and expert analysis by the TWS edit staff, will be flown to Los Angeles to attend the Dew Tour on August 13th. The finalist videos will then be broadcast on the Dew Tour webcast on August 14th and 15th, inviting viewers to cast their final votes. The winning team will be announced at Dew Tour during the live webcast on Sunday August 16th and receive an editorial spread in TransWorld SKATEboarding magazine, tickets to the We Are Blood premiere and other great Mountain Dew prizes.
 
Additionally, both finalist teams will earn an exclusive invitation to skate the TransWorld skate park and film an “Afternoon In The Park” for the TransWorld website.
 
Voting begins June 8th at TWSkate.com
