TOP PRIZE: GOAL ZERO SHERPA 50

Keeps your gear powered up anywhere you go. Sleek, lightweight & indispensable.
The Sherpa 50 from our generous sponsors at Goal Zero. One for EACH category!

Challenge Categories

Films may be submitted for any one of three categories.

MOST INSPIRING

Go ahead, inspire us! Take us on an adventure that uplifts and moves us. A film that shows off humans at their best, their most determined, their most brave or selfless! Got a film that moves people? This is your category!

MOST INNOVATIVE or Creative

Innovation and creativity are the core of how we express ourselves. As athletes. As explorers. As filmmakers. This category is for films that show off new ways of adventuring. Pushing new boundaries in a sport, combining sports, doing things with a unique twist. Or just really creative filmmaking. See the world differently? This is your category!

MOST SURPRISING or Unusual

This category is for films that pack a big surprise. Or that deliver the unexpected. Maybe it’s a twist of fate. An odd encounter. Maybe it’s a life lesson that came unexpectedly. Great adventures are full of surprises. Great filmmaking is figuring out how to deliver one!
