The First Annual Quartersnacks Readers Choice Awards

readers choice

With this past weekend’s announcement proclaiming Wes Kremer as Thrasher‘s “Skater of the Year,” there was an exhale of relief. For years, conspiracy theories roared about Deluxe-biased selections, or favoritism of those who were just-short-of-exclusively “Thrasher guys” (e.g. Wes had Transworld & Skateboard Mag covers this year, but not a Thrasher one.) No funny business, no tampering with the voting box — everything seemed right. May Sk8Mafia grow into the most successful yet indifferent-to-growth skateboard company to ever exist.

Something that could have prevented years of speculation on the S.O.T.Y. selection process is transparency. Who came second? Who landed fifth place? How many votes for Sinner did they count? Did my fill-in vote for J.B. Gillet go through?

As a result, we present you with the most transparent year-end awards in skateboard internet history. These serve no purpose than to commemorate our hyper-specified niches of interest within the skate world by affixing percentages to their coolness via you, the reader. Now, you can get to see how similar or different you view the world, art and love than the average QS visitor. Feel free to vote in as many or as few categories as possible. Winners will be presented with possibly a free drink if you bump into anyone with possession of a QS company card throughout 2015.
