Visioning the Outdoors – extended

Visioning the Outdoors – extended

Film & Photo Comp extended to close on Friday June 7

Posted on 10.05.2019

The Visioning the Outdoors Film & Photo Competition closing date has been extended to Friday June 7*

With so many public holidays in the last month or so, we have decided to extend the closing date to give everybody enough time to sort through their films and images, select the ones that best meet the competition parameters and put in an entry (or two!).

The new closing date is Friday June 7

All the other dates have been altered to suit as well: Competition Dates

As a reminder, what we are looking for are action shots or film clips of people enjoying being outdoors in great locations – paddlers, bushwalkers, climbers, campers, MTB’ers, canyoners, abseilers … and more. Get the idea!

There are some great prizes to win in all categories generously supplied by our prize partners, Equipped OutdoorsPaddy PallinCrumplerRescue SwagK2 Basecamp and Chris Bray Photography – over $4,000.00 worth of prizes to be won.

Prizes include sleeping bags from Paddy Pallin, duffle bags and camera bags from Crumpler, water filters and head lamps from Equipped Outdoors, first aid kits from RescueSwag, and vouchers from K2 Basecamp.

About the competition

  • This is a competition for and about outdoor recreation – in the outdoors!
  • It is not a nature or landscape competition, nor is it a portrait competition.
  • Nature, landscape or portrait entries will not be disqualified but should capture the essence of the competition theme: LIVE LIFE OUTDOORS

*Please note, QORF reserves the right to change competition dates without notice
