 Local means anywhere in Kansas. 82,277 square miles. The Land of Ahhs. Ad Astra Per Aspera. Home on the Range and all that!  If you don’t like it you are welcome to go somewhere else to find your fun.

 Self-supported – means carrying all food and gear yourself.  For example, having family or friends meet you at the end of each day’s journey with food, camp gear or resupply goes against the spirit of being self-supported.  We are encouraging participants to be DIY for the Adventure and the Story-telling. No charter bus, no commercial outfitter, no commercial videographer, no corporate sponsors. 

 Self-propelled. Feet, Pedals, Paddles, SUPs, Sails, Parasails, etc.  No fossil-fueled transport except to get you to your starting point or safely home from your destination.

 Storytelling in Word can be as simple as the story you might tell your friends while sitting around a campfire, or at The Moth.  Your Story can be told through poetry, prose, an essay, a blogpost, or a short story.  

Visual storytelling is open to your creativity – photography, videography, phone camera, GoPro, watercolor, charcoal, oil, collage, sculpture, whatever…. The Story-teller must participate in the Adventure. Solo Adventure or group Adventure with family and friends (two legged or four legged) are equally encouraged.

Awards. Awards will be given the night of the festival: October 25th.  There will be cash prizes for award winners and swag for attendees! The event is sure to be almost as fun as your adventurous submissions. 

 Submissions:  The submission window is March 1 through October 1.

 No entry fees are planned at this time.
