Calling All Adventurous Photographers, Filmmakers & Writers! ROAM is proud to announce the first annual ROAM Awards, embodying the spirited creativity of our extended audience of adventure seekers and storytellers. Whether in photo, video, or written essay form – they’re looking to showcase the best of the best. Their collaborative quest is to discover, celebrate, and amplify emerging and established talents while promoting a pervasive appreciation for the natural world, adventure, and meaning.

Your submission should represent what gives you meaning in life, connects you to the greater good and demonstrates how you share it with the world. This purpose is a ‘calling’ you cannot ignore, no matter the cost and may manifest as personal transformation or as your attempt to impact other people and/or the environment in a positive way.

Your submission must relate to adventure with purpose and focus on an aspect of your adventure which is completely new to you. Whether it’s a ‘first’ for just you or a ‘first’ of all time, the challenge is capturing and expressing this personal discovery in a photo, video or essay.

Your photo, video or essay awards submission for the Awe category must relate to a place that has left you in awe of our natural world.

Your submissions must relate to an experience that gives you a thrill, gets your heart beating or creates an adrenaline rush; that surge of pure joy and energy that lives at the very edge of adventure. This category isn’t for the ones who ask why, but instead ask, why not?

This category is for showcasing the lessons you learn that come from adventures that don’t necessarily go according to plan or which teach you a lesson you didn’t anticipate you would learn. These are the journeys that leave a lasting impression on you and challenge your perceptions.
