Vancouver, British Columbia – James Atkins has the Superfever, and soon so will G3 retail partner BentGate.com, which helped sponsor the most recent round of G3's annual Skigraphiks contest. Skigraphiks is an annual competition that encourages consumers to submit designs that will grace limited-edition runs of G3 skis.

Atkins won the third-round of the annual winter contest with his design ‘Superfever II,' which the designer says “will give you superpowers to take on those couloirs, bumps, and ski them into next week.” Adkins' winning graphic will grace a special-edition version of the G3 Fever that will be sold exclusively by BentGate.com.

The SkiGraphiks Contest, which runs in four separate segments over the winter, continues this month with the fourth phase in concert with Backcountry Magazine. The contest currently running will put a limited-edition graphic on the topsheet of G3's Zenoxide. Later this month, G3 and Backcountry Magazine will announce the winner from that segment of the contest.

To check out the winners of the first three phases, visit g3skigraphiks.com/winners. For more on the contest or to submit an entry for the final phase, visit g3skigraphiks.com.

The SkiGraphiks competition, which ends Feb. 15, encourages people to submit their graphic designs for a ski via the G3 web site. The top four designs are produced in limited-edition skis.

This year's challenge has 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, so consumers have an opportunity to enter each month through February.

Here's how it works: skiers can submit their designs at www.g3skigraphiks.com, the public gets to vote on them, and, like Adkins, the winner each month will get a pair of G3 skis with their graphic on the topsheet.

In addition, during the first three months, the skis will be available on a limited basis to the public. Each online retailer affiliated with each respective month's contest will take pre-orders for that particular limited-edition ski during the weeks immediately after a winner is named. The skis will be delivered to anyone who buys it within 30 days of the close of ordering.

At the end of the contest, one of the designs will be chosen as Grand Prize winner by G3. In addition to skis, that artist will win a quiver of G3 gear, including their choice of telemark or alpine-touring bindings, as well as an AviTech shovel, Carbon probe, Alpinist climbing skins, a Bonesaw and G3 ski bag.
