Outer Edge Adventure Awards 09 Photo Contest
Outer Edge Adventure Awards 09 – Best Photograph of the Year. Outer Edge is on the search for all that’s great in the wide world of adventure. Actually we’re after the pinnacle. So we’ve created our own Australasian adventure awards, which we hope grow to be the cornerstone recognition of achievement in the outdoor and adventure community.
The Awards are about celebrating not only big-budget expeditions but also the multitude of grassroots efforts that are the bedrock of true adventure. We want to commend and recognise those that push themselves out of the comfort zone and over the edge in their quests for adventure, no matter the motivation. ‘Just because’ is good enough for us.
We also want to pay tribute to the people and organisations that lend their support and professionalism to the outdoors industry. Without them, getting our and your adventurous dreams off the ground would be a whole bunch harder, if not impossible.
