The craft of action sport photography requires constant devotion and unfailing passion. As the preeminent action sports photography contest in the world, the Pro Photographer Showdown is an unparalleled celebration of still images and of the commitment shown to build a body of work that captures time and captivates the human spirit. In tribute to the masters of their field, we invite action sports and lifestyle photographers from around the world to submit their work for an opportunity to earn a trip to Whistler, BC, during the 2013 World Ski & Snowboard Festival to showcase their work for an audience of sports enthusiasts, media and industry professionals….and to win the $10,000 cash prize for Best in Show. In addition, all four runners- up will receive $1,500 cash as an appearance fee.
The world wide submission call will award spots to 5 photographers to present 9 minute slideshows of their life’s work.
$16,000 in cash prizes have been allocated, cementing the World Ski and Snowboard Festival’s Olympus Pro Photographer Showdown as the preeminent action sports photography event in the world.
Travel and accommodation in Whistler will be provided for the five finalists chosen to present in Whistler (if required), and will be booked by the Festival production office.
