WHISTLER’S WORLD SKI & SNOWBOARD FESTIVAL


Action Sport/Lifestyle Competition Features World’s Best Shooters in Showdown for $10,000 Purse
WHISTLER, BC, March 7 2007 – Whistler is gearing up for a clash of the titans, when five of the world’s best lifestyle and action sports photographers compete in the tenth annual Pro Photographer Showdown at the TELUS World Ski & Snowboard Festival, April 18 2007.

Chosen from a stellar showing of international submissions, the finalists for the tenth annual Showdown, hailing from Norway , Colorado , California , and Vancouver BC , were announced today.

The five selected photographers will be flown to Whistler for a gala presentation on April 18, 2007, lured by the bright lights of the Festival, the industry’s preeminent celebration of action and lifestyle photography and a $10,000 prize purse.

At the Pro Photographer Showdown, the most dynamic moments in action sports are captured and mounted, trophy-style, for an appreciative 2000-strong crowd in a series of self-curated 9 minute multimedia presentations.
The “Best of Show” designation conferred at the renowned photography expose will see the winner join an alumni that includes Kevin Zacher, Eric Berger and Aaron Chang, who will judge the Showdown alongside Whistler’s “King of Light” Paul Morrison, and long-time host of the Pro Photographer Search, writer and creative mastermind Leslie Anthony.

“The early years of the Showdown were simply our best friends shooting skiing and snowboarding. Now it's morphed into an iconic and unique celebration of action sports - surf, skate, bike, AND snow," says Jack Turner, Commissioner of the Pro Photographer Showdown. "The night of the Showdown is all about the passion and commitment to the culture of action sports whether you're a photographer, an athlete, or someone lucky enough to have a ticket to the show."

Throughout its ten year history, the Pro Photographer Showdown has featured stunning photography from renowned surf photographers Aaron Chang, Jason Childs, Jeff Divine and Warren Bolster; skateboard gurus J. Grant Brittain and Jon Humphries; acclaimed mountain bike photographer Sterling Lorence; ski & snowboard legends Kevin Zacher, Eric Berger, Paul Morrison, Blake Jorgenson, Mark Gallup, Scott Markewitz, Dave Heath, Vianney Tisseau and Mattias Fredriksson, among others.
