- Win with Salomon, Ultra Trail Cape Town, TRAIL Magazine and Red Bull
Salomon launched the Salomon Women’s campaign or #SalomonWMN as a global initiative to encourage women to help in redefining what it is to be a woman in the outdoor space and to celebrate those challenging gender cliches - showing how in the outdoors women are able to be free, be strong and be themselves.
This celebration and redefinition has drawn in voices from all different women and through the #SalomonWMN movement they have had a place to share their stories. Visual storytelling, in our day and age has become one of the most powerful ways to inspire and educate. Recognising this Salomon wants to continue to provide a space to showcase these captivating images and stories but also to shine a spotlight on the outdoor photographers and creatives who create them.
In November, Salomon are partnering with a team of professional adventure photographers, photo editors, plus Ultra Trail Cape Town, TRAIL magazine and Red Bull to encourage any womxn amateur or professional adventure photographer or young outdoor content creator to participate in a competition aimed at sharing images and stories of friends, family or athletes PLAYING in their favourite outdoor locations, environments, or scenes.

The resultant photographs and story will be published by Salomon, Red Bull, and TRAIL magazine. The winner will be mentored by local adventure photographer, Kelvin Trautman over the assignment days.
