Carlsbad, California (June 15, 2017) – For the first time ever, X Games is giving skateboarders everywhere the opportunity to compete in Minneapolis by using the Podium Skate App. Podium Skate is a new app created by CA Productions that allows users to upload their footage and be ranked by our pro judges for a chance to be invited to the live event on July 13-16. This will be the ONLY way to participate in this year’s X Games Am contest without an invite.
Here’s how it works, users upload one clip that includes their best 30 seconds of footage. All submissions will be scored and ranked by Podium app users. From there, the top submissions will then be judged by our panel of pro judges and the top three entries will be officially qualified and will go directly to the finals in Minneapolis. This will be the only way to compete in this year’s X Games Am contest without an invite.
After the public scoring round, the Podium/X Games Pro Judging panel will score the top submissions and determine the final rankings.
X Games Am Street & Park:
- This is the first time X Games has opened qualifying to the public and allows everyone around the world a chance to compete. Only the top three submissions for both Am Street & Park will be selected to compete in this year’s X Games Contest.
- If you are selected as one of the top three submissions, you are not only qualified, but make it straight to the finals to compete against X Games top three invited Ams! The 6-man final will be held during X Games in Minneapolis Minnesota July 13th – 16th.
