Olympus Pro Photographer Showdown at the World Ski and Snowboard Festival

The Preeminent Action Sports Photography Event in the World
Thursday, April 14th, 2016
The craft of action sports photography requires constant devotion and unfailing passion. As the preeminent action sports photography contest in the world, the Olympus Pro Photographer Showdown is an unparalleled celebration of commitment to still images that capture both time and the human spirit.  As one of the most prestigious action sports photography competitions in the world, the OLYMPUS Pro Photographer Showdown has seen some of the top action sport and lifestyle photographers in the game battle it out for the title of Best in Show during the World Ski & Snowboard Festival.

Once again, there are 5 spots up for grabs in the Pro Photographer Showdown, but this year 4 of those spots are for invitees and 1 spot will be reserved for a Wild Card Entry.

A select panel is on the hunt for the world’s best action sports and lifestyle photographers, and 4 of them will be invited with no pre-submission required.

The Wild Card Entry will be chosen by a selection process whereby any photographer from around the world can submit a 3-minute slideshow by March 1st to be reviewed in hopes of being selected as the 5th photographer, and be in the running at this year’s show.

In tribute to the masters in their field, all 5 photographers will be flown in to showcase their work for an audience of sports enthusiasts, media & industry professionals at the ultimate showdown here in Whistler, BC on Thursday, April 14th. The coveted title of Best in Show will be awarded the $10,000 grand prize!

Get ready to go on a stimulating visual journey with some of the best photography the 5 finalists have gathered throughout their careers.
