Ski Portillo announces

Jordan Manley and Chad Sayers

as the winning photographer/skier team of the South American Photo Challenge, co-sponsored by

Skiing magazine

. This competition took place Aug. 23 – 30, 2008, in the spectacular Andes Mountains. After a week of intense competition between five of the worlds’ premier ski photographers and five professional skiers to test the limits of exposure and gravity, the winners were hard to choose and all five teams produced outstanding photographs.
The teams – Gene Dwarkin, shooting Josh Van Jura, Steve Lloyd shooting Jason West, Grant Gunderson, shooting Pep Fujas, Adam Clark shooting Eric Roner, and Jordan Manley shooting Chad Sayers – had five days to explore Portillo and the surrounding Andean backcountry, striving to capture the best photographs in five different categories: Mountain Lifestyle, Powder, Air, Big Mountain Line, and Creative Angle.

On the final day of the challenge, each photographer presented their top images, to the guests at Hotel Portillo and a panel of judges – including Jake Bogoch, Editor-in-Chief of

Skiing magazine

, and Mark Lesh, Photo Editor of

Skiing magazine

. Jordan Manley and Chad Sayers won a feature assignment with

Skiing

for the 2009/2010 winter season as well as a vacation for two.

Skiing

will publish the award-winning photographs in each category in the February 2009 issue. Check out SkiNet’s full coverage of the event
