Vancouver, British Columbia – Pow!, a design by Caleb Warner from Buckhannon, West Virginia, was chosen as the overall winner of this year's G3 Skigraphiks Contest.

Warner, a graphic designer at a print shop by trade, aspires to take his passion for designing skis from hobby to profession someday. As the grand prize winner, Warner will receive a pair of G3 skis with his one-of-a-kind Pow! topsheet graphic. Warner is excited to use his skis at the local West Virginia ski hill, Timberline, as well as on ski trips.

The SkiGraphiks competition, which held four separate contests between September 1 and December 31, encourages people to submit their graphic designs for a ski via the G3 Skigraphiks web site. The top design from each round was produced in limited-edition G3 skis. To see a list of the winning graphics, please visit: g3skigraphiks.com/winners.

To enter the contest, contestants submitted a topsheet graphic via the Skigraphiks website and the public voted on their favorite design. The overall winning design, “Pow!” was one of the most popular among viewers on the contest site and was also deemed the best design by a panel of G3 judges.

This year's challenge had four rounds, in concert with four partners -- online retailers Backcountry.com, MountainGear.com and BentGate.com, and Backcountry Magazine online, each with a different G3 ski, giving consumers the opportunity to enter four competitions between September 1 and December 31, 2011.

The grand-prize winner will receive a ski package valued at over $1,400. The package will include a pair of skis with their winning top-sheet graphic, as well as G3 skins and G3 bindings.
