Arco Rock Star / The international climbing photography contest 2019
From 10 to 12 May 2019 Arco, Italy will host the Adventure Awards Days and also the fourth international climbing photography contest Arco Rock Star. Professional and amateur photographers
Two days during which athletes and photographers will go in search of the photo that describes the athletic gesture, but also the landscape and everything that revolves around climbing - from the fatigue to the smiles, from the sunsets to the beers. In short, a story of passion for climbing and for photography.
Two categories, Pro, who are selected by invitation among the leading names in the outdoor photography all around Europe and beyond; and Open, where people can soon register online at www.arcorockstar.it or at Arco directly before the event.
For each team, a photographer and maximum 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 receive gear.
Alongside Arco Rock Star, also for 2019, there will be La Sportiva that supports every climber from 1928 and also Arco Rock Star for the second year in a row. This collaboration confirms La Sportiva interest in telling a story of the vertical world using photographs.
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 tables 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.
