This year, skate company Vans has launched its first ever Vans Global Custom Culture Competition, and voting for the finalists is now open to the public. Over 100,000 artists and designers took part in the competition, submitting their own custom designs, and the next voting stage will help the Vans team narrow down 10 finalists in each of the three major markets: North America, Europe, and Asia Pacific. These finalists will then receive a pair of Eras that will be used to realize their design, after which another public vote will take place.

In the end, each region will have three winners, all of whom will receive a grand prize of $25,000 USD and have their designs made and sold by Vans. They’ll also receive a free trip to the Vans headquarters in Southern California where they can meet Steve Van Doren and other global designers, as well as team up with the company to donate $100,000 USD to a charity helping various creative communities.

For those interested, voting is now already underway and will continue through to October 13, 11:59 pm PT. Head over to Vans’ website to cast your vote now.

Elsewhere in sneakers, Nike is suing Skechers for allegedly copying its Air Max designs.
