The SanDisk Best Photo Sequence Contest officially closed on Thursday after nearly 300 people entered, vying for the $5,000 cash prize, awarded to each a ski photo and a snowboard photo.
We’ve narrowed down those entries to just 10 ski shots and 10 snowboard shots. Our panel of judges — including FS Editor Matt Harvey, FS Photo Editor, Shay Williams, Snowbaord Editor Chris Owen, Snowboard Staff Photographer, Mike Basher and photographer extraordinaire, Chase Jarvis — is now going through the finalists with a fine-tooth comb, rating each photo in four different categories: technical execution, composition/creativity, action and overall impression. The winner will be announced by May 1, 2010.
Here are the ski sequence finalists, shown in no particular order:
