In 2012, Xpedition.TV launched as an online channel for explorers and adventurers. Our mission: To create Challenge Awards to fund today’s bold adventures and to share those stories online and on television.
The channel soon hosted its first Adventure Film Competition, sponsored by Goal Zero. The competition garnered nearly 60 short film entrants, and 160,000 highly targeted impressions for our sponsor, an impressive start for a fledgling channel.
Awards were given in three categories: “Most Inspiring,” Most Innovative,” and “Most Surprising” Adventure Film. (see Awards).
Additionally, the competition opened doors to adventure & documentary filmmakers worldwide, became the jumping off point for Xpedition.TV’s first original film “Tom Sawyer on the Danube,” and inspired the new unscripted tv series “Life Without Borders.”
