We’re so excited to announce the return of The Inertia Film & Photo Challenge 2022 presented by White Claw®! First launched in 2012 as a portfolio-based competition, we reimagined the contest last year to celebrate the rich creative energy of surf and outdoors through moving and still imagery in four unique categories with cash prizes that require only a single-photo or video submission: Black & White, Lineups, EMERGE, and Short Profile Films. With nearly 1,000 stunning entries in 2021, we were blown away by the level of talent. Selecting winners was a painstaking, but rewarding process. There was simply too much great to go around. That’s why we’re so excited to fire it up again.
In partnership with White Claw®, MIIR, and PARKIT, cash prizes will be awarded to the winners of the four categories. With a total purse of $5,000, each photo category has a $1,000 winning prize, and the winner of the Short Profile Film category will receive $2,000.
