Any original (taken by you) photo/video or footage purchased from Outdoor. It can be from a trip booked with Outdoor (but it doesn't have to be) that captures what it means to you to live the Outdoor life. We want your perspective, your vision, your experiences!
We’re not looking for something specific. We can offer some tips on things to consider though. Keep your lens clean, choose the best lighting, have a story in mind and try to find interesting angles. Quality is important so try and upload the highest quality photo or video you can. Here’s a great article on photography tips that may help.
You can win your money back on the trip you booked or gear you rented with Outdoor. If you didn't go on a trip, you can win a voucher that can be used for one of our activities.
