International Women’s Day may have been yesterday, but why stop at one day to celebrate women’s achievements?
The BMC has teamed up with Sport is Beautiful, the Sheffield Adventure Film Festival (ShAFF), WomenClimb, Mountain Warehouse, and a load of other partners to bring the Women in Mountain Adventure Film Competition. After discovering at the ShAFF that only an average of 20% of entries were created by women, or featured a female protagonist, the Women in Mountain Adventure Film Competition was created to address this issue.
The main contenders for the prize have now been shortlisted, and whether it is naked swimming in the lakes of Snowdonia year-round to a young girl’s first exploration of her local hills, the competition shows women are moving and achieving year-round, not just on one day.
