Entries for the 20th edition of SuperUnknown are open and will close March 13th, at 11:59pm!


The SuperUnknown contest is open to amateur male and female athletes worldwide, ages 12 and up. To celebrate the 20th anniversary of SuperUnknown, we will also be inviting a bunch of the top freeski talent from all over the world to ski with us- from past SuperUnknown winners, to OG's we all know and love, to today's most skilled athletes. This year's finalists will have a chance to throw down with some of the greatest to ever do it during a week long session and park shoot. More info to come on who will be showing out - so stay tuned to @level1 instagram to keep updated!

All entries should be submitted online through the upload form on the Level 1 website - quick, easy, and painless! The upload form will be open through March 13th, 2023.

Entries should show an athlete’s skill, style, and personality. The video must communicate not only the talent and ability of the athlete, but his or her personality as well, and may include lifestyle shots in addition to action. The contest will be judged, and the Finalists determined, by examining the overall skill, ability, style, and potential of the contestant.

How are we scoring entries this year? There’s no official scoring sheet, but here’s the breakdown on how we’re looking at entries:

10% Personality

20% Technical Ability

30% Style

40% Overall Impression

Powder and street clips go a long way to help your entry. While there are usually a few all-park finalist videos, SuperUnknown has always been an event for skiers making a path for themselves outside the traditional competition circuit - seeing people push themselves in multiple disciplines of skiing (park, pow, and street) matters to the judges!


About SuperUnknown

SuperUnknown was started in 2003 to help discover and expose the best unsponsored up and coming talent in the game, and give them a shot at making a name for themselves outside of the traditional competition scene.

The first contest of its kind, entrants were asked to submit a simple promo video showcasing their skills, talent, bag of tricks, style, and personality. No résumés, no still photos, no essay questions- just pure unfiltered video action. Entries were reviewed and judged by Level 1's staff and athletes. The most impressive skier each year took the title and was awarded a chance to film with Level 1 and given a foot in the door of the industry. 20 years deep, SuperUnknown is the biggest and best open video contest in action sports with over 100 entries coming in from top amateurs and the best undiscovered talent around the world.
