Premier Post: If you're Creative, Talented and Adventurous? , 11 kbJust after we ran the Marmot Onsight Film Competition (see all entries here) at, Mike Weeks started the The Reel Adventure Diaries (TRAD) Film Competition in conjunction with the 2009 Outdoors Show.

Budding filmmakers had to submit examples of their work and then six were chosen to enter the finals. The finalists were kitted out with latest broadcast camera gear and financially supported to follow a top class extreme athlete on one of their death defying adventures with a brief to make a ten minute film. These finalists will then show their finished films at the 2009 Outdoors Show at the NEC, Birmingham (March 27th – 29th).
