| posted on April 27, 2012

Redondo Beach, CA (26 April, 2012) – 2011’s successful Any Hand, Any Where contest put on by Body Glove is starting again on May 1st, 2012. The contest will go for 6 months and end in October.

The contest revolves around an inflatable hand, being taken with participants where ever they go; on vacation, to sporting events, etc. and getting an epic shot with the hand. Like last years contest there will be 2 winners each month, one for best location shot and one for best action shot. Those monthly winners will receive a Body Glove prize package and be entered to win the grand prize at the end of the contest. In October, one grand prize winner will be chosen from the 12 finalists. Body Glove will choose the winner but they will take into account the feedback from social media. The grand prize includes the Ultimate Body Glove Prize Pack: a Method wetsuit, VaporSkin boardshorts, Body Glove t-shirt, snorkel set, a towel, sunglasses and best of all a trip for two to Kona, Hawaii!

Last years submissions included pictures from Viet Nam, Mount Everest and someone even included the hand at their wedding. Action shots involved skyboarding, wakeboarding, surfing, and diving with the hand. Contestants this year are going to have to step it up in order to win.

The inflatable hands are sold online and are given out at Body Glove events.
