You probably forgot about it, but way back in the fall we held the first Madshus/FasterSkier Vintage Photo Contest. We decided to make the contest “vintage” as well as the photos, by waiting far too long to announce the winners. Well, good things come to those who wait!
Thanks to Madhus for sponsoring this contest!
All photos entered had to be from 1994 or earlier. We have a few “guest” submissions. Peter Hale of Madshus dug into his archives for some great shots – he was obviously not eligible for prizes but wanted to add to the selection.
1st – Madshus backpack
2nd – Madshus ski bag
3rd – Madshus baseball cap and beanie
We also gave away a pair of skis as part of this contest. The lucky winner has been notified.
Our panel of judges voted, and here are the winners!
First Place – Tim Kelley
“Black and white contrast, the movement in the photograph, the drool, the look of utter determination.”
“The cutting edge technology, the event and who it is all adds up to a photo which is quite good on its own.”
Second Place – Edgar Hee
“Interesting angles of all the equipment, great clothing and even better glasses – I think I saw those on the runway in Milan in 2009.”
“Wow: look at the height of that skate pole! And the glasses.”
Third Place – Dave Newton
“The onlooker makes this one the winner. a) not looking at the skier b) fancy coat and cigar and black shoes”
“I love the history, the young man in the background smoking a pipe and the high speed of the racer. Plus someone took the time to find this old photo and keep it all these years.” All Entries:
