Next Thursday the Bright trade show will be hosting the third ever European Skateboard Awards ceremony in Berlin’s Babylon Kino. There are a bunch of different categories, you may remember Palace picking up an award last year for European brand of the year.
This year promises to be action packed. Palace are once again in the runnings for brand of the year alongside Magenta, Perus Crew, Polar and Sweet skateboards. It’s also great to see that Sam Ashley and Henry Kingsford have been nominated for the photographer of the year award.
We’re especially excited about this event because after our 27th year of serving and supporting the London scene our store is up for an award too. Slam City Skates has been nominated for Shop Of The Year! Other nominees are FTC from Barcelona, Nozbone from Paris, Welcome from Madrid and Mackey’s store Lost Art from Liverpool who won last year. This award coincides with Chewy Cannon’s birthday so hopefully there will be a repeat of this celebration
