Star in your very own winter video with Snow Bum 2: The Snapshot

How about getting a free trip to Sun Peaks and starring in your very own winter video?

Tourism Sun Peaks is launching a sequel to the successful Snow Bum competition held last year with a new contest called Snow Bum 2: The Snapshot. All it takes to get the grand prize is one great photo that’ll show the world how much you love winter.

“Since Snow Bum was such a success last year, we wanted this year’s contest to be even more accessible to participants across the globe,” said Christopher Nicolson, president of Tourism Sun Peaks. “A picture is worth a thousand words, and having people show us why they love winter through their lenses is a great way to celebrate the snow season. We anticipate lots of creative and unique shots will be shared with the world.”

The winner will get a trip to Sun Peaks Resort with three friends and enjoy free accommodation for six nights at the heart of the village.

But the highlight is the opportunity to be filmed for a professional winter-themed video with Kevin Hagell from Kaizen Visuals, the same company that filmed the resort’s promotional winter video.

To enter the contest, submit a photo to the Snow Bum website that shows your enthusiasm for winter.

“We’re looking for creativity. We’re looking for people to show passion for winter. We’re encouraging people to include the contest logo in the photo where possible, and to incorporate their landmark,” explained Melanie Simmons, media relations specialist for Tourism Sun Peaks. “It’s your casting call for the video so we want people to really step up and show us why they deserve to come here and create their own video.”
“It’s a really great prize and a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to basically spend the day with a film producer. We’re pretty excited to give someone that chance.”

Once you’ve entered, make sure to show your entry to friends through Facebook and Twitter because the most popular entry will also receive a prize.

The contest deadline is Sunday, Feb. 20, 2011. The “Most Votes” winner will be awarded and the top 20 finalists will be announced on Tuesday, Feb. 22, 2011. The winner will be officially announced on March 1, 2011. The grand prize must be redeemed between March and April 2011.
