With over 100 submissions from around the globe there are a few that for one reason or another weren't selected as Finalists or Semi-Finalists, but we still think they need to be shared and seen, and so we're giving them the distinction of "Honorable Mention." Enjoy!
Superunknown was started in 2003 to help discover and expose the best unsponsored up and coming talent in the game, and give them a shot at making a name for themselves outside of the traditional competition scene.
The first contest of its kind, entrants were asked to submit a simple promo video showcasing their skills, talent, bag of tricks, style, and personality. No résumés, no still photos, no essay questions (answers on the official entry form are not judged and used for reference purposes only!)- just pure unfiltered video action. The most impressive skier each year took the title and was awarded a chance to film with Level 1 and given a foot in the door of the industry.
Now in its 10th year, Superunknown is one of the biggest and best open video contests in action sports with over 100 annual entries coming in from top ams and the best undiscovered talent around the world.
Past Superunknown winners include:
2004 Superunknown I Corey Vanular
2005 Superunknown II JD Zicat
2006 Superunknown III Michael Clarke
2007 Superunknown IV Tom Wallisch
2008 Superunknown V Jon Brogan
