Rules and Info:

1. Submit an entry image of artwork you've done on a skateboard. The skateboard art can be something you've done a year ago, ten years ago, or yesterday. You do not have to go out and buy a skateboard and paint something new specifically for this contest. We know you have paying client work on your table.

2. Please do not submit something you've submitted to previous Gnarly Magazine Skateboard Art Contests.

3. Your skateboard can be hand painted, airbrushed, spray painted, or whatever. So long as your artwork is on an actual skateboard you're good to go. 

**Original skateboard graphic restorations are NOT permitted as entries** **sorry**

4. Submit one (1) image file entry. You're free to add multiple angle photos of your skateboard art in that single entry image file. If more than one entry image is sent, I'll just pick my favorite. Do a simple Google or App Store search for collage makers.

5. Your artwork MUST be on a physical skateboard. If the artwork is a digital illustration, you must show the physical board with your artwork printed on it.

6. Your skateboard art entry should be your work. Please don't submit skateboard art that you found on Pinterest or any other websites.

7. Promote your website(s) in your image file. People want to know where they can find you, so be sure to include your website/Instagram/etc. in your entry image.

8. The contest will be voted on by the public, so, if you want a chance to win, be sure to promote on your social media sites. Some people have a really good "Get Out The Vote" game, so keep that in mind when you see the vote totals start to come in.

9. Polls for each matchup in each round last 24 hours.

10. Have fun!


Deadline: Submit your entry by 5pm EST Friday, June 21st

Voting begins on Monday, June 24th at 9am EST
