Here's the mash-up: The Vans Warped Tour, Cancer Education, Four Killer Bands, A Kick-Ass Skateboard Company – and – The Artists of deviantART!



Create a skate deck design for one of the four bands that will be shredding up the stage at this Summer's Vans Warped Tour and support the work of Boarding for Breast Cancer!


Boarding for Breast Cancer, is a non-profit organization educating young people on breast cancer awareness and breast health. We're asking you, the artists of deviantART, to join Fearless Records and Hooligan Skateboards to benefit this great cause and to support the work of Boarding 4 Breast Cancer. How? The boards taken by Fearless Records will be auctioned off with 100% of the profits benefiting B4BC!


You pick the band from this killer set: Blessthefall, Breathe Carolina, Pierce the Veil and Tonight Alive. The bands will also be judging the decks to find the one that tunes into their sound the best.


The Grand Prize winner will score a massive prize package that includes VIP tickets for two to the Vans Warped Tour (nearest to their hometown), and the winners for each band will have their designs printed on skateboard decks that will be displayed on tour by Fearless Records. They also get a copy of their winning deck for their personal collection signed by the band!


Skateboarder or not, take a look at this year's Warped bands, get inspired and design a rockin' skate deck!

2 weeks late, really?

seeing as it is near 2 weeks over due from what we were told and the warp tour has started already, I'm under the impression that the typo theory wasn't that "June 6th" meant "June 16th" but actually might have been "July 6th"...

That said, I do hope the judges are at least taking this very seriously.

Quick Question: You say that the band representatives now have the entires meaning its about 20 entries they are looking at, those being the semi-finalists. A winner from each is picked by the band and then again the top 20 are looked at for the Grand Winner. It's only 20 entries so why is it taking so long? I undertand the first part was probably very hard and long but really? Does it take this long?
iPengu's avatar
also its only 5 per band. soo..

2 weeks overdue.
