We at Whitelines were stoked to find out we’d been shortlisted as a finalist for a Maggie Award, the magazine equivalent of the Oscars.
The awards, which are given out for the best magazine covers in the industry, are pretty prestigious – we’re up against titles like Vogue and Hello.
The cover we submitted to the awards was the one from issue 82 – with Colum Mytton boosting off a big old kicker into the sunset. It was a pretty damn special shot by Vernon Deck from the Whitelines trip to Iceland, which you can read about here.
Having made the final five in the sports category, our fate is now in your hands… the winner in the category (and the overall winner) will be chosen by a public vote.
So we know you’re probably sick to death of reading about voting, but unlike that un-important election thingy they had recently, your vote is sure to count in this one!
Obviously we think ours is the sickest cover in the competition, but we also reckon it’d be a great thing for UK snowboarding if we did well – I mean, no-one wants to see that Muscle & Fitness cover win do they?
So come on, get involved, and head over to themaggies.co.uk and get voting. Let’s see if we can put the UK scene on the mainstream map!
