Arco Rock Star, register now for the international climbing photo contest

di

Registration is now online for Arco Rock Star, the international climbing photography contest for professional and amateur photographers that will take place from 10 to 12 May 2019 at Arco, Italy during the Adventure Awards Days festival.

From the 10th to the 12th of May professional and amateur photographers from all over Europe will gather in Arco, Italy, and compete for two days in order to find the best climbing photo. Two days during which athletes and photographers will search for the photo taken on the rock faces in the Garda Trentino region that best describes the athleticism, but also the landscape and everything that revolves around climbing - from physical effort to smiles, from sunsets to beers. In short, a story that recounts the love for climbing and for photography.

As usual there are two categories: Pro, selected by invitation from leading names in the outdoor photography industry from Europe and beyond; and Open, where people can now register on the website www.arcorockstar.it or directly at Arco, immediately before the event. Each team is comprised of a photographer and a maximum of three athletes.

The best photograph of the Open category will receive a prize of € 500, while the best photos of the Pro category (each team must submit 4, which will be evaluated as a whole) will be rewarded with € 1500. Second and third place will recevie gear prizes.

Arco Rock Star 2019 is partnered for the second year in a row by La Sportiva, who has been supporting climbers since 1928. This partnership confirms La Sportiva's interest in telling a story of the vertical world using photographs. La Sportiva is joined by, Garda Trentino, f-stop Gear, sestogrado.it and Vertical Life.

The program includes several new features, which will be announced in the next few months: the main one concerns the Friday program, which will offer meetings, including technical ones, and round table discussions dedicated to photographers.

The event takes place within the Adventure Days, the International Festival of exploration. The eighth edition will be held from the 10th to the 12th of May in Garda Trentino: adventure and shows, activities and meetings with great travelers, adventure lovers and explorers will meet to share stories, experiences and passions. On stage, every night, great explorers and international alpinists.

Garda Trentino, the world of water, rocks and nature with Mediterranean scents embedded in a ring of vertical walls, becomes the ideal stage for a meeting aimed at an increasingly wide audience of fans of the style of life and the outdoor holidays.
