La Parva Chile is having amazing photo and video event called “Eye Of The Condor,” and it’s scheduled for July 30 – August 5, 2011. Sponsors for the event include: La Parva Ski Resort, Delta Airlines, Canon, K2 Skis, Shane McConkey Foundation, Snowbird Ski and Summer Resort, Ski Utah, Discrete Headwear and KLINT Skis.
“The Eye Of The Condor combines world class photographers and videographers with athletes to create a unique competition which puts brands against each other,” says La Parva’s Director of Corporate Sales and Marketing Rodrigo Medina. “Adam Clark came to me with this idea several months ago, and now the vision has become a reality and this is the first event of its kind in the Southern Hemisphere, and everyone at La Parva is extremely excited to be part of this world class competition.”
World class athletes and photographers alike who are already involved with this first time event are: K2 Factory Team, and Discrete Headwear founder and professional skier Julian Carr (pictured below/right), who will head up the Discrete Headwear team.
“I’m very excited to be bringing a team of Discrete athletes to participate in The Eye Of The Condor event,” says Carr. “The Eye is a unique project that combines competition with artistry and social action. It’s highly unusual to be part of something that is so powerful. I can’t wait to get to Chile and La Parva!”
Besides being a competition and rewarding cash prizes for the best video and photography, the Eye Of The Condor will be having a photography contest for local Chilean students. The event also will be providing a forum for broader discussion having seminars, photo exhibitions and other events looking at how important photography and action sports play in the world today.
A full list of participating athletes, photographers and speakers will be available shortly.
