FAQ Judging and competitions

Check here for a summary of the different competitions 

and here for Contest Registration

 

General explanations about the contests:

The difference between sponsored and non-sponsored (both mixed, so for men and women) is mainly in level and about the question whether you already get gear and decks sponsored. You can subscribe to any category you prefer, but the non-sponsored is mainly there to give other riders except from the well known riders a chance. For both there will be amazing prizes! So also non-sponsored can join in the ‘sponsored’ competition (but not in both!).

The Women Dance competition is of course only accessible for women. This competition will be split in ‘sponsored women’ and ‘non sponsored women’ when the amount of contestants exceed the amount of riders in the other Dance competitions. Women can only subscribe to one of the Dance competitions, so either mixed (sponsored or non sponsored) or the Women Competition.

The film / photo competition is a contest which will be held mainly after the event. If you register for this you’ll have to do your best the registrate the event on either film or photographs. The best cinematographic impression of the event will also have a chance at prizes.
