The Nissan Outdoor Games is back for its 6th consecutive summer edition. This year, the five teams will head to the Chamonix-Mont-Blanc Valley to create a high quality short film and still photo production in only one week. The Nissan Outdoor Games is the only event of its kind bringing together the world’s best athletes in extreme sports with the top of the line filmmakers and photographers. Their productions are shown to the public on a giant screen in the heart of Chamonix-Mont-Blanc on July 15.
The world elite of kayakers, climbers, mountain bikers, paragliders, and BASEjumpers will once again re-unite in five teams with a top class film and photo crew to create a five minute film of highest quality, capturing the spectacle of outdoor sport in its natural environment. 30 000 € prize money is at stake to win the "Golden Peak Award" for the best film, the "Prove It Award" for the best sport sequence, and the "Best Still Photo Award", announced by an appointed jury on July 15.
The originality of the event; uniting top level athletes in various extreme sports disciplines, with photographers and filmmakers, gives a highly creative atmosphere where interesting development and progress is seen within the sports as well as within the art of filmmaking in an outdoor environment.
Due to the extraordinary backdrop of Chamonix-Mont-Blanc, the Mecca of action sports, the film festival has found the perfect venue for its sixth edition.Chamonix-Mont-Blanc has already twice hosted the winter version of the Nissan Outdoor Games in 2009 and 2008.
