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. 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. 

3. 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 Google or App Store search for collage makers.

4. No digital artwork. Your artwork MUST be on a physical skateboard.

6. Your skateboard art entry should be your work. Please do not 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. Vintage or new-school skateboard deck restorations are not accepted in this particular contest.

9. Polls for each matchup in each round will be open for 24 hours. The poll results will remain hidden for the 24 hour duration. Winners will be revealed shortly after the polls close for each round.

10. UPDATE: There are 130 entries. We will be doing 3-way matchups for the duration of the contest to move it along quickly.

11. Have fun!
