Our associates over at MPORA have hooked up with photography giant Canon to give away two amazing prize bundles, including actual cameras, to budding photographers. Get involved!


For your chance to win some amazing Canon gear, all you need to do is demonstrate your photography skills. Beyond that, it’s easy: just upload your finest action, outdoor, and adventure shots to Instagram and add #CanonFirsts to your post.

It could be a snowboarding shot, something about the lifestyle surrounding it or even a cool landscape you come across in the summer, far away from any snow!

There’s a reason why Canon cameras are trusted by some of the best action sport and adventure photographers in the world, in fact, many of snowboarding’s most prolific lensfolk trust Canon to bring their world to life as they live for the story.

Here’s your chance to win one of two amazing prize bundles. This is what’s up for grabs:

1st Prize
– Canon EOS M50 with kit lens EF-M 15-45mm IS STM – a new 4K mirrorless camera
– EF-M 55-200mm f/4.5-6.3 IS STM Lens
– EF-M 11-22mm f/4-5.6 IS STM Lens
– Camera messenger bag

2nd Prize
– Canon EOS 800D with kit lens EF-S 18-55 mm f/4-5.6 IS STM – a sophisticated DSLR that’s easy to use
– EF-S 55-250mm f/4-5.6 IS STM Lens
– EF-S 10-18mm f/4.5-5.6 IS STM Lens
– Camera messenger bag

Photography is one of the cornerstones of snowboarding’s culture, making memories that last a lifetime. Whether it’s a classic Method, a sequence of some insane new trick, or capturing the magic of the mountain environment, photos freeze that moment and allow you to pore over the details in a way impossible to replicate in other media.



Now, MPORA and Canon have teamed up to unearth the undiscovered photographers out there. A new generation, whatever the age, who can capture that magic moment and can bring it to life. They want to see what you’ve got.

Entering couldn’t be easier. Whether it’s an old shot or a new one – as long as it’s one of your own – add #CanonFirsts to your action, outdoor and adventure photos when you upload them to Instagram. Yep, they don’t even have to be snowboard shots.

Editors from the Factory Media network (our parent company), which includes the biggest names in Action, Outdoors and Adventure, will then studiously scroll through the hashtagged submissions and pick the winners.

The photos simply have to be your own work, and good enough to impress our panel of action sport and adventure judges. So, what are you waiting for?

Looking for some inspiration? Here’s one, above, from the Whitelines vault. But don’t stress, we won’t pick it as a winner…
