build recognition amongst the wider community of outdoor activities, people and spaces;
inspire increased participation and respect for outdoor recreation and recreation environments;
stimulate interest and raise the profile of QORF and the role it plays in the outdoor sector;
raise the profile of the outdoor recreation and education sector;
stimulate interest in QORF activities and attract new members; and
create shared value for partners supporting Visioning the Outdoors.
|Visioning the Outdoors Short Film Competition|
|Theme: LIVE Outdoors|
LIVE Outdoors is a celebration of the power of outdoor recreation activities to enrich people’s lives. The film competition asks you to create a vision of outdoor activity and nature that is inspiring and creative; telling a story of life as it is lived in the realm of outdoor activities.
Film submissions for LIVE Outdoors may focus on one, or many, outdoor recreation pursuits and environments but the intention of submissions should be on developing a short film, in any genre, that helps to inspire others to be active outdoors.
