“Capture the Spirit of Idaho Guided Adventures” video contest

The Idaho Outfitters and Guides Association is stepping it up a notch this year in terms of looking for more fresh, entertaining and informative videos from IOGA members about all of the outstanding guided outdoor adventure activities in Idaho.

So, we’re launching a video contest this year, similar to our ever-popular photo contest. We’re calling the contest, “Capture the Spirit of Idaho Guided Adventures.” The winners will be selected at the IOGA annual meeting in December. Have fun with it! Try to capture the spirit of the outdoor adventures that you offer.

We’re hoping the videio contest will inspire IOGA members to shoot and produce more videos to promote their businesses on their web site and social media channels, and help IOGA promote your business on its web site and social media.

Please note that the contest is open to IOGA-member outfitters and their guides.

Here are some examples of IOGA member videos:
