After an extremely successful event in 2011, Ski La Parva is pleased to announce the return of Sony Eye of the Condor – a week-long film and photo competition set in the Andes, July 27 – August 4, 2012.
Presented by Sony, Subaru Chile and Delta Airlines, Sony Eye of the Condor 2 will showcase elite athletes and photographers from around the world from July 27th to August 4th, 2012. A new partnership with iF3 will provide increased media distribution for teams and brands, as well as the first ever iF3 Film Festival La Parva/Chile in Santiago. An all-star panel of judges (including Ingrid Backstrom and Chris Davenport) and athletes (including the K2 Factory Team) will surely set a high benchmark for what’s to come in the 2012/2013 season.
“With the direction of the sport focusing on digital media and quality of production, we have created a venue for athletes and brands to showcase their highest quality work in a cultivating environment,” says Ski La Parva’s Director of Corporate Sales and Marketing Rodrigo Medina. “Not only does Sony Eye of the Condor provide a great outlet for competitors, the laid back Chilean atmosphere provides a great platform for industry leaders to discuss the state of the sport.”
In addition to the competition, which will award cash prizes to the best video and photography portfolio, Sony Eye of the Condor will support local arts, with a photography exhibition showcasing local talent. The event will also provide a forum for broader discussion with seminars, photo retrospectives and other events that seek to examine the roll that action sports and photography play in society at large.
