Monthly Winners Invited to Participate in Live Contest in Sparks, NV
Orlando, Fla. - Wakeboarders, wakeskaters and wakesurfers across the globe once again have a chance to claim international bragging rights with the opening of the second annual Tigé MyWake Global Challenge. The one-of-a-kind contest, which is open to riders of all ages, sex and skill levels, will collect video submissions between June 1 and Aug. 31 at mywake.tige.com with judges selecting monthly pro and amateur winners to receive cash, prizes and/or invites to the live contest in Sparks, Nevada on October 4-6, 2013.
The groundbreaking virtual format of the Tigé MyWake Global Challenge allows competitors to submit a video of their very best possible run to the judges – ensuring the highest quality of riding ever in a contest. In addition to athlete video submissions, this year’s competition features an open call for video editors to show off their savvy editing skills, with a $5,000 prize up for grabs for the best edit of an athlete submitted videos.
"We saw such a great response from riders from all across the world for last year’s MyWake Global Challenge it was a no-brainer to bring it back," said Daniel Gutierrez, Tigé’s Director of Marketing. "With the progressive format of the contest, any type of rider could claim first place in their division. We encourage people to start filming and submitting ASAP to ensure a spot in this year’s Challenge!"
The monthly prizes are as follows:

Through Aug. 31 riders can enter the online contest. Monthly winners are only eligible for one first-place finish, so new participants and repeat participants who have not yet placed first in a division are highly encouraged to continue with new video submissions. Riders can enter each unique event by submitting a video of their best run to mywake.tige.com. World Wakeboard Association (WWA) judges will review the submissions and select the monthly winners.
Monthly pro winners will receive automatic invites to the live final main event in Sparks, NV. in a pro-am style contest to battle for the top podium spot behind a new and unseen Tigé boat.
Also new to the 2013 Tigé MyWake Global Challenge, the team from Polaroid Action will be onsite providing its one-of-a-kind, point-of-view cameras to capture all of the action from the most unique angles possible.

The Polaroid Brand
Across several generations, people regard Polaroid as one of the most trusted, well-respected and recognizable brands when it comes to technology. The history of Polaroid began 75 years ago, with its roots stemming back to Polaroid instant film, cameras and camera accessories – thus was the introduction of the famous Polaroid Classic Border Logo which is still recognized today as a true landmark of photography.
In recent years, Polaroid has expanded its range of products in consumer electronics and photography, such as instant and digital cameras, high-definition camcorders, mobile printers, tablets, flat-screen TVs and more. People can expect to see new Polaroid products that will deliver the fun, instant gratification and value that the brand has long stood. For more information, visit polaroid.com or polaroidstore.com.
