What the judges say:

Women in Adventure film judge, Emily Pitts said: "Watching this year's film entries was a real pleasure. What I loved was listening to the diversity of women's voices that you projected on screen and seeing the diverse ways you told your own and others' stories.

Since its inception in 2015, the competition has built and developed each year, with you all stepping up and creating stories that resonate with people, that inspire people and which give people great joy. The effort, passion, attention and care that went into all of the films was evident and has provided me with inspiration for my own adventures. Thank you for the time and energy you've invested in your film. It's our most popular year yet, with treble the number of watches already. Go you and your crews, you did this."
