<60 Seconds Micro Shorts Contest

We're awarding 'micro' short entries (under 60 seconds) to get glimpses of your time on trail. 

What We're Looking For

We created this unique category so anyone can enter a film and share their trail moment with the world. 

Show us your favorite spot from your recent walk, a moment of trail magic, your favorite section of single track, the quiet found by waking up early, or share something you learned while walking. 

Example videos


While we prefer horizontal (1920×1080) video, we are open to accepting all micro shorts for screening at the World Trails Film Festival and on our social media channels. 

~ 60 seconds or less

Keep your camera steady

Due to copyright protections, videos with unlicensed music will be accepted but may not be able to screen at Trails Film events.


Our audience is full of influential outdoor recreation leaders from around the world. Join us to make a powerful impression and support a community of stewards of our planet’s cherished pathways.
