Sitting on some rad stills or footage of the Snowy Mountains? Enter Snowy Mountains Captured and you could win some epic prizes.


COVID’s a bastard and it’s sent the festival online, but it’s still kicking! Presented by Rhythm Snowsports and a crew of rad sponsors, Jindabyne’s first short film and photo festival is all about celebrating what makes the Snowy Mountains region so special.

We Are Explorers is one of those sponsors! We’ll be judging the ‘Adventure’ category (go figure).

What are the categories?

The festival features four stills categories, a major photo prize, and a short film prize.


Photo Categories

Action presented by The North Face 

The process of doing something to achieve an aim. The image should capture movement made and the process.

Adventure presented by We Are Explorers

An unusual, exciting or daring experience. An adventure photo should capture this essence of adventure.

Nature presented by Keep It Cool

The phenomena of the physical world; plants, animals and landscapes. A photo in this category should capture any part of nature.

Snowy’s Choice presented by Snowy Mountains Tourism

Every photo entered will go into this category and winners will be chosen by Snowy Mountains Tourism.


Each category will see five finalists, from which the winner will be chosen.


Major Prize

The major photography prize will be chosen by the people! All 20 finalists will be posted by Rhythm Snowsports on their socials and likes will determine the winner.


Short Film Prize

Film entries will be judged on the views they can rack up in a week.
