Nick Khattar and WASTED YOUTH present the first annual Cross Eye Photographer Showdown. Photographers with teams of 3-4 snowboarders will be randomly assigned a topic and will have 3 days to shoot a photo essay on that topic. The event will take place in Revelstoke (general area) and teams will have the freedom to shoot wherever they want: on the streets, backcountry or on the resort. After you are assigned your topic you and your team can lock yourselves in your uncle Morty’s shed in the Big Eddy and shoot medium format portraits all weekend for all we care. That’s art baby!
There will also be a “24 in 48” category where participants will get a roll of 35mm film and have 48 hours to shoot whatever they want with it.
Winners will be announced, and award ceremony will be held, in November of 2021 (so we can hopefully have a rager’). The winning 3 photo essays will have their photo’s printed, framed and turned into an exhibition that will hopefully be shown in ski towns around BC and Alberta.
