News: Top Athletes, Industry Leaders Confirmed For Sony Eye of the Condor 2

Next Up

La Parva, Chile – Top skiers and industry leaders are scheduled to arrive in La Parva this week for the second annual Sony Eye of the Condor, a week-long film and photography contest. Set in the heart of the Andes, La Parva will play host to athletes including JT Holmes, Julian Carr, Rachel Burks and Drew Tabke, and industry leaders including Chris Davenport, Adam Clark, and Ingrid Backstrom.

“The Eye of the Condor format is full-throttle,” says professional skier JT Holmes. “It's not a long period of time and the competition is fierce, so you have to hustle to get exciting shots, but with the terrain available it all works out. I tend to need a week to decompress after the event.”

While the film and photography competition will be the centerpiece of the event, a collection of industry leaders will also provide a forum for broader discussion during the Eye of the Condor Actions Sports Symposium. Industry leaders such as Chris Davenport, Dave Fields and Julian Carr will offer their insights on the roll that action and adventure sports play in the world at large.

“Yes, Eye of the Condor is about teams producing the best short film and photography portfolio, but it’s also a celebration of skiing and mountain culture,” says La Parva Director of Corporate Sales and Marketing Rodrigo Medina. “It’s a perfect way to share Chilean ski culture with the rest of the world.”
