Read through the information below and use the link provided to submit an amateur entry. All submissions must be received by October 28.

The sledfilm amateur award contest is the largest and longest running snowmobile and snow bike amateur award contest in existence. Every year, dozens of amazing amateur sled videos are submitted for review by our panel comprised of athletes, industry representatives, professional filmers and others. The winner is announced at sledfilm, with the winning entry shown on the big screen during the show. Winners also receive the Yeti amateur trophy and a prize provided by a sponsor.

Past sledfilm amateur winners have gone on to producing their own films, filmed for other productions or even having their sledfilm submission included in other professionally produced films. We are excited to be a catalyst for up-and-coming filmers.

  • Videos must be 7 minutes or less in length.
  • Amateur means amateur - Any segments or shots used can not have been filmed or produced by someone that has produced or filmed video professionally.
