REI and Arbor, a collective of artists, designers and friends who snowboard, skateboard and surf, are asking people to submit designs for a snowboard design contest.

One winning design will be picked and featured in Arbor’s 2010-2011 snowboard lineup and sold exclusively at REI. The winning designer will also receive a snowboard featuring their design and a $1,000 REI gift card. Four runners-up will each receive a $500 gift card.

This free contest is open to artists of all skill levels.

Entries will be accepted from Monday through Dec. 31. As soon as artists have submitted their artwork, people may vote for their favorites by clicking on a “thumbs-up” or “thumbs-down” icon at the Web site.

On Jan. 10, the top five vote getters will go to the final round, where Arbor and REI judges will choose one grand-prize winner based on creativity, artistic translation of the artwork into snowboard graphics, and quality.

The winner and runners-up will be announced on Jan. 15.
