Last year, we scoured hundreds of applications + selected 10 teams to create a 3-5 min film showcasing their personality, their perspectives, their local stomping grounds, and what it means to them to “Stay TREW”...and we put up $10,000 as a grand prize.
Now, with Fall '23 fast approaching, each individual teams’ 3–5 minute edit has been combined into a longer-form film and we're getting stoked to take this show on the road with screenings in each teams’ respective hometowns.
Find the 2023 film tour stops below, and we can't wait to see you soon!
Once you've watched the films, it's time to weigh in + vote for your favorite edit - and for which of the 10 videos you feel best brings the “STAY TREW” mantra to life.
After voting closes, TREW will tally the community results and the team with the most votes will receive a $10K cash prize.
The application period for the 2022/23 project closed on 12/10/22 and the final 10 teams have already been selected....but stay tuned for a new application window launching soon for the 2023/24 TREW To You Project!
Teams can consist of between 2-5 individuals, including riders and filmers. It could be 1x rider and 1x filmer, or 2x riders and 3x filmers. If you have a story that you think deserves to be told and snow that deserves to be ridden, we’d love to hear from you.
After receiving all of the submissions during the application process, the TREW team will sort through every application and handpick the 10X teams that we feel will best bring “STAY TREW” to life based on a variety of criteria, including but not limited to:
Absolutely not! This is open to any and all snow sport enthusiasts of any level. If you have an incredible story and a plan for how to tell it, shoot us what you have in mind!
Each team selected will receive…
Unfortunately, this contest is only open to those residing in North America at this time. Sorry!
We are permitting teams to leverage support for this initiative from their other sponsors with a few exceptions:
If you have another sponsor or brand you would like to work with - be it a ski/snowboard, beer, goggle, boot, helmet brand - have at it. Just let us know what you’re thinking in your Proposal, and we can give you the green light*.
*Involvement from external brands and the placement of their logos/marks within a given team’s edit pending approval from TREW.
All teams - and individuals within a team - are mandated to wear TREW outerwear in their film.
NOPE. One of the aspects that makes this project so interesting is the element of a finite filming / editing timeframe.
All footage must come from the filming window*.
*If a team would like to use archival footage for storytelling purposes, they must submit a request to the TREW team for approval.
No way! Everyone’s process + snow situation is different. If you get nuked on day one and stack enough clips to create your story, good on ya; on the flip side, if you need all 6 weeks, that works too!
Most definitely! We are looking for a wide range of riders, conditions, geographies, people, and stories. More weight is placed on storytelling versus snow quality.
Nope! Ride your backyard, summit Mt Hood, hit some rails downtown, rip pow turns in the upper bowls, or cruise the local mountain. Your world is our oyster. Show us that you can tell your story in an engaging way and we are all for it, regardless of where or how you do it.
Any audio used in final edits will need to be 100% licensable. Whether it’s an original track or snippets, it must be commercially licensed for use.
We’re not here to mandate how you use the money, but in our mind, startup cash could go towards things like additional camera equipment, paying filmers, gas, lift tickets, etc.
The winner of this project will be 100% chosen by the community!
At hometown screening events and upon digital release, viewers will be able to vote digitally on their favorite edit and which of the ten videos they feel best brings the “STAY TREW” mantra to life. After voting closes, TREW will tally the result and the team with the most votes will receive a $10K cash prize.
