For immediate release:
Revelstoke, British Columbia: On March 7 at the Roxy Theatre, Stoke FM's hilarious and infamous duo Katie Burrell and Scott Duke will host Revelstoke’s premiere low-impact, non-contact, blood, sweat and tear-free (hopefully) event, Hot Lapse, a 72-hour professional photographer showdown.
Talented and decorated ski and snowboard photographers Jim Harris, John Antoniuk, Reuben Krabbe, Steve Shannon, Todd Easterbrook, and Zoya Lynch will go head-to-head in a three-day shootout sponsored by Tourism Revelstoke, Revelstoke Mountain Resort, Salomon, POWDER Magazine, the Swatch Freeride World Tour, Arc'teryx, and Dissent Labs. All six will submit a slideshow of their work from that period to be screened and judged by industry professionals on originality, creativity, photo quality, and overall slideshow “banger-ness.” All six will be awarded a RMR 2014/15 season pass. All six will be the topic of conversation in the social media feed of every powder lover, and at the bars and in the streets (mostly the grocery stores) of Revelstoke. Only one will pocket $3,000 as the 1st place winner. Two more will take $1,500 and $700, for 2nd and 3rd places, respectively and the remaining three—while undeniably "robbed" due to the stacked competition field—will take home $250 each. A People’s Choice award for best slideshow will stand as mitigation to the uproar.
During the three-day photo shoot, Instagram and RMR will also hold a public #hotlapse photo contest for the best action shot at Revelstoke Mountain Resort. In the week following the event, Salomon will host an online vote for Best Photo from the competition.
Doors open on March 7th at the Roxy Theatre at 6:30 p.m. with the show starting at 7:30 p.m. This will be a 19 and older event, with all refreshment proceeds going to the Revelstoke Canine Search and Rescue Society.
