New Photo Challenge ‘Uprising’ Announces Teams

There’s a new photo competition coming to Whistler, BC—and its got a bit of a twist. After a long run of success for the always popular Deep Winter, the organizers decided it was time to take a breather. Lucky for us, Origin Outside stepped up to the plate with a new format and event taking place Saturday, February 22nd.

Pairing a professional photographer with an upcoming talent, the event features plenty of faces you’ll be familiar with —and more than a few you should begin to acquaint yourself with. See below for the full list of teams and more from Origin Outside.
