Looking to get your paddling fix in video form? Then you’ll definitely want to checkout the latest entries in Kayak Session magazine’s annual Short Film Awards. As of now, there are five outstanding entires, although submissions are still being accepted if you have a film you’d like to share. For consideration, your film must be under five minutes in length and it will be judged on cinematography, editing, image quality, storytelling, creativity and kayak performance. The first place winner will receive $5000 cash, with $2500 going to second place and $1000 to third.
My favorite entry so far is the video you’ll find below. It follows a team of paddlers into the High Atlas Mountains of Morocco as they go in search of epic new runs. They find some surprisingly great water to explore along the way. This beautifully shot video captures that adventure quite nicely.
