Congratulations to the éS Game of SKATE Internship of a Lifetime winners! The Interns are:
Photography: Phil Blair, from Chicago, Illinois.
Filming/editing: Deiter Galvan, from Beaumont, Texas.
Writing/blogging: from Indianapolis, Ind., former éS Game of SKATE winner Patrick Binkley.
And if Dieter Galvan’s name sounds familiar, it may be because he won Active’s Scuba Steve Contest a couple years ago.
Each application was reviewed and each entrant's work was evaluated for quality. An assessment was made based on how each entrant portrayed themselves and how they viewed skateboarding and filming, shooting or writing. Some finalists were interviewed by telephone before the decision was made.
We want to recognize a few other finalists, too. For the photographer spot: Nick W., Ryan S. and Nils W. For filming: Jordan J., Adam M., Jonathan N., Dorian Warneck and David Stoessel. Finally, for the writer spot: Paljum Tshering, Justin Ringley and Geoff Christ were all in the running.
Thanks to everyone who entered and we’ll see you on the road!
