To be considered, films should:

  • Have been produced after May 1, 2016
  • Have a maximum run-time of 5 minutes (including titles and credits)

Submission Period: May 31 - July 31, 2017

Committee Voting Period: August 3 - 11, 2017

Notification Sent to Finalists: By August 17, 2017

Contest Promotion & Public Voting Period for Finalists Films: August 26 - September 30, 2017

Please review the contest terms and conditions and use the below form to submit your entry to the 2017 Adventure in Motion Film Contest. Please note that your video will need to be hosted on Youtube. If you have not yet uploaded your film, privately share it to us via Youtube and place the link below.

In August the submitted films will be voted on by an Adventure in Motion Voting Committee. If your video is chosen as one of the seven (7) finalists you will be notified by August 17. You will be required to submit a copy of your video for promotional use, and ATTA/Adventure.Travel will add a short campaign pre-roll to all finalist videos.

The campaign will go live on August 26, 2017 and public voting will officially open. Finalists will then be provided a link to their video’s landing page on Adventure.Travel, which may then be shared on social channels.

At the end of the campaign period (September 30), the top three finalists will be chosen based on highest number of Facebook “likes,” and all three videos will be showcased at the Adventure Travel World Summit (ATWS) in Salta, Argentina. A live vote will be cast during the screening, with a finalist chosen by the ATWS attending delegates. Contestants are encouraged to share their entry on social media, especially Facebook. Facebook likes will be counted as votes.

The winner will receive a one-year ATTA membership, a ticket to the 2018 Adventure Travel World Summit, a grand prize from ExOfficio, exposure through AdventureTravelNews, Adventure.Travel website, Adventure.Travel email newsletter(s) sent to 200,000+ consumers and prizes from AFAR.
