Last month we announced a brand new IF3 Palms Trophy for this year's Newschoolers Awards at the culmination of the fourth annual International Freeskiing Film Festival (IF3), the Newschoolers Best Webisode Award...and asked you to pick the nominees.

12 companies uploaded three of their best webisodes for the chance to have one of them shown during this year's IF3, which takes place from September 16th - 19th in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. Once they were all up, it was up to you to vote for your favorite, and select the top 5 highest rated entries (from separate producers) as the nominees.

The votes are in, we've tallied them up (and eliminated any unfair ones), and here now are the 5 webisodes that will be shown during this year's International Freeskiing Film Festival, where they will be viewed by a capacity crowd and judged by an esteemed panel of skiers to determine who takes home the first ever Newschoolers Best Webisode Award at the Newschoolers Awards on September 18th...
