GoPro Dirt Diaries
Location: Whistler Olympic Plaza
Tuesday, 12 August 2014
What happens when you combine a passion for pedals with storytelling power and masterful use of technology? The GoPro Dirt Diaries puts creative power into the hands of photo and film-focused mountain bikers, tasking them to capture the essence of the experience we all share and love. Riders assemble a team of up to six people, including film crew, editors and other athletes, and are given two months to put together five minute videos to tell their own unique story. Submissions are judged based on storyline substance, videography, riding and editing, then screened in front of a massive audience under open skies at the Whistler Olympic Plaza.
An expert panel of judges will determine the top three teams, with $5000 awarded to the first place video, $3000 for second place and $2000 for third.
Riders selected to compete in the GoPro Dirt Diaries at Crankworx Whistler in 2014:
Wade Simmons, Claire Buchar, Ross Measures, Kirt Voreis, Andrew Taylor, Yannick Granieri
