Shoot to Thrill

Shooters, take your positions—the annual Outside Bozeman Photo Contest is back for its fifth year, and it promises to be the best one yet. From landscape to lifestyle, action to wildlife, there’s a category for every aspect of (outdoor) life in southwest Montana. And with three divisions—professional, amateur, and junior—everyone can get out there and give it their best shot. Winning images gain enduring fame in the Fall 2012 issue of Outside Bozeman and on the all-new outsidebozeman.com. Need more incentive? How about loads of loot for the top shots, including new camera equipment from Bozeman Camera & Repair, a photographic helicopter tour with Rocky Mountain Rotors, and $500 in cold, hard cash from Outside Bozeman. Not to mention an invitation-only award party and celebration—complete with food, drinks, prizes, and schmoozing with Bozeman’s artsy elite—for all contest entrants. So what are you waiting for? Dust off those lenses, open those apertures, and start shootin’. The deadline’s July 15; rules and info at outsidebozeman.com/community/contests.


The Best To-Do List Ever

Sunshine and toasty temps are right around the corner, and that means it’s time to start ticking off tasks for the O/B Summer Hit List Contest. Like last year, the challenge is to tackle 20 of southwest Montana’s most quintessential activities—like floating the Madison, biking the Bangtail Divide, and summiting Sacagawea—while taking photos of yourself in the process. Winners in five categories—most tasks completed, best photograph, etc.—score a pile of outdoor goods from Bob Ward’s and the North Face. The real prize, though, is a seat in the halls of Outside Bozeman fame—all winners appear in next winter’s issue. So grab your camera, head to the hills, and make it the most epic summer yet. For a full list of tasks, contest rules, prize descriptions, and last year’s winners, visit outsidebozeman.com/community/contests.


GoPro Hero

Got a helmet-cam video of a yard-sale wipeout while skiing spring corn on Slushman’s? How about your buddy cartwheeling a kayak through the Kitchen Sink? Or perhaps a funny flick documenting your drunk roommate’s antics around the campfire? Whatever it is, just edit out the expletives and public urination, add your favorite tune, and send it our way. Winners of the inaugural Outside Bozeman Video Contest score sweet prizes from the fabled O/B Treasure Chest, including bomber outdoor apparel from Outa Ware, rafting with Montana Whitewater, camera equipment from Bozeman Camera & Repair, and much, much more. May 11 is the deadline, so get outside and start filming. Full contest info at outsidebozeman.com/community/contests.
