The gang from SoO Airtime has just announced the return of OPEN AIR which is a grassroots film and photography competition for the Australian snowfields. People are invited to enter by submitting a short film (less than 3 minutes) or photograph captured in the Australian snowfields.
According to organisers "Anyone is welcome to enter and anything welcome, whether it is park action at Mt Buller, free-heel-free-minded antics in the Bogong high plains or a snowman build at Dead Horse Gap...."
So if you fancy yourself a bit of a budding film-maker and you like to shred and have fun - this could be for you - with $2000 worth of gear up for grabs its definitely a must for the 'to-do list' this season!
here is an example of a submission:

WHAT IS SoO?
SoO stands for 'State of Origin' and SoOAirtime is a series of events from the city to the snow and online, that culminates at the end of the season with the State of Origin of skiing and snowboarding.
The best skiers and snowboarders from Australia’s two alpine states are grouped according to origin, then teamed up with the snow industry’s brightest young film-makers and photographers to produce two short films (one per state) over one week at Mt Buller (29th August - 2nd September). The films are then posted online and the public can vote for their favourite.
This season, two chicks will be featured in the SoO comp - snowboarder Jess Rich and our very own Anna Segal! excited to see what the girls will be bringing to the week of competition at Buller!
SoO Airtime is all about supporting Australian snow sports athletes and artists, so take part, watch and vote!
