The Steep & Deep Pipeline Photo Challenge
The 2nd Annual Steep and Deep Pipeline Photo Challenge Begins Saturday, November 10!
We are excited to announce the second annual Steep and Deep Pipeline Photo Challenge! The contest returns after a successful inaugural event, with Billy Kemper and photographer Zak Noyle taking top honors for a dreamy, backlit Pipe bomb. This year we look forward to even more barrels more prize money — all in loving memory of Sion Milosky.
Sion was an extraordinarily talented and humble family man. His unparalleled bravery in big waves and his first passion, charging pipeline, made a lasting impact on the greater surf world. Steep and Deep celebrates the commitment that Sion embodied by rewarding the surfer and photographer who link up for the best water photograph of the winter from Pipeline or Backdoor.
The contest waiting period begins on November 10 and closes on February 10. Any surfer who registers has a chance to win. And any photographer, regardless of magazine, brand or media affiliation, is eligible to win. All entries must occur during free surf sessions — no waves ridden during a heat will be considered. Images will be judged by a panel of Sion’s peers, Pipeline specialists and photography experts.
The winning surfer and photographer will receive $2500 each from Vans, a custom hardwood framed copy of the winning image and a pair of shades by Oakley. Vans will also give a matching $5,000 donation to the Sion Milosky Memorial Fund. In addition, The photographer wins Aqua Tech water housing with accessories worth over $2,000. The winning Surfer gets a brand new custom surf board by Scovel Boards, Kicker audio gear, a Go Pro and of course bragging rights that you got the sickest shot of the winter season at Pipe or Backdoor!
