We were overwhelmed by the response to our Summer In The City competition, blown away by the standard of the entries we received and over the moon to see so many people show up to the screening. It was a memorable event that we put together with Vans on many levels. If you didn’t make it out on the night you can live vicariously through this gallery of images shot by Maksim Kalanep…

Thanks go to everyone who came out on the night and most of all to everyone who spent their summer filming to get their entries in. The best thing about the whole competition was that it ended up bringing everyone together. It’s great to see how healthy the London scene is, skateboarding is alive and well. We will definitely be running one of these again. See all of the winning entries HERE. We will be posting all of the other entries later today.
