In partnership with Bulgaria, the competition was open to all members of the adventure travel community, including tourism organizations, tour operators, creative agencies, and individuals. Films were submitted for one of the following categories:
- Adventure needs Nature
- Adventure needs Women
- Adventure needs Community
After the film submission period, all films were reviewed and voted on by a Film Selection Committee. The committee narrowed down the submissions to three finalists per category, and then the public voted for their favorite in each category from 25 July through 20 August.
The category winners now advance to the live voting period, which will take place during the Adventure in Motion keynote session on Wednesday, 5 October at 17:00 CEST at the 2022 Adventure Travel World Summit (ATWS) in Lugano, Switzerland. All Summit delegates are encouraged to attend and support the three finalists.
Congratulations to the following category winners!
Adventure Needs Community
Sustainable Cocktails Made in Patagonia
This film showcases how Las Torres Reserve in Patagonia Chile embraces its community, not only external but also its collaborators. We believe supporting & understanding the interest of the individual makes our community stronger. – Mauricio Kusanovic, Reserva Las Torres Patagoni
Adventure Needs Women
100% Women World Record

Adventure Needs Nature
Adventure is a State of Mind
Adventure is a state of mind. And adventure tourism is facing the uncertainty of our natural world seeking impactful memories and meaning. This film, by Álvaro Palácios, aims to be a kind of scrapbook, a spontaneous collection of states of mind during our experiences. We try to show the essence of the Azores and the impact of these unique islands on those who visit us, with responsibility and respect. To display the emotional impact on each one of us and everyone we welcome and take to explore the extraordinary life that the Azores have. – Carlos Picanço, Futurismo Azores Adventures
