In November of 2021 Spark R&D will celebrate 15-years of manufacturing backcountry splitboard bindings! In advance of our anniversary, we’re hosting a hashtag photo contest. There are two main ways to enter the contest, but both involve using the hashtag #SparkFifteen.
We’d like to thank everyone that participated in the I Heart My Avy Center Essay Contest. In all, we received 25 unique essays representing 15 different avalanche centers! It was inspiring to hear all the great work that avy centers are doing in their mountain communities all over the US and Canada.
For the past five seasons, we’ve held our annual T-Shirt Design Contest. We’ve received more awesome submissions than we can count. We wanted to keep the creativity flowing, but change things up a bit this year, so we’re holding a Sticker Design Contest.
A decade has gone by since we unveiled a primitive prototype of the first splitboard specific binding on splitboard.com. It has been a fun, fulfilling, and really exciting time to go from concept to company.
Every autumn we put out the call to all the artists, graphic designers, and other creative types, to submit a design or designs for a Spark R&D T-Shirt. Over the years we’ve had some amazing entries and every year it gets more difficult to select the winner.
