Active Emerican Idol Contest!

Skip to the rants (0)

Note: This contest is being held by Active Ride Shop and IFILM, not Emerica.

Active Ride Shop and IFILM are excited to launch the very first Emerican Idol, an online competition to find the best amateur skateboarder! Amateur skaters from across the U.S. will submit their films, which will be posted on IFILM, and fans and pro skaters will vote each week for their favorites.

One winner will be named the Emerican Idol and will receive a Grand Prize, which will include product from Emerica, Baker and Krew. The winner may also be invited to select key events in Southern California to meet and hang with top pro skaters and a chance to enter the Am Contest.

Winning entries will be celebrated and featured on IFILM as examples of some of the top up and coming amateur skaters to watch for. Your first step to a career in professional skateboarding just got easier.

The search for America’s top amateur skateboarder began on May 1, 2005 and ends on August 1, 2005. Top entries will be posted on IFILM and the winners will be announced on September 1, 2005. Enter here.
