Video Contest

A huge congrats to Colin Fearing from Canmore, Alberta for being this year’s grand prize winner! And congrats to all the winners in other categories who worked hard to make some great short films about our backyard in Canada and the importance of spending time outside. All of these winners will receive gift cards from MEC to help get them out there even more! And Colin’s winning short film will be part of the internationally acclaimed Banff Mountain Book and Film Festival for 2021!
