Applications open for Red Bull X-Alps 2017

Calling all adventurers! The application phase for the zooom-run Red Bull X-Alps 2017 is now open. 

Starting on July 02, Red Bull X-Alps 2017 will be the eighth edition of the epic paratrekking race. The race committee is inviting applications from adventure-proven men and women. Applicants must be capable of journeying more than 1000km across rugged mountain terrain, by foot or by paraglider, nearly non-stop over a 10-day period. Applications are open from July 01 to August 31, 2016.

Red Bull X-Alps is a race of endurance and strategy; endurance because when the weather doesn’t play ball for flying, athletes continue on foot, running or power-hiking, occasionally up to 100km a day; and strategy because knowing when to take off, when to land, what valleys have which winds and how to respond to them makes Red Bull X-Alps a thinking sport. 

From the start gun to the finish, it’s also a race where anything can happen. In the 2015 edition, fans watched in amazement as rookie athlete Sebastian Huber and race rockstar Paul Guschlbauer tried to chase down reigning champion Christian Maurer. They ultimately came second and third to Maurer, but the millions of fans watching Live Tracking were on the edge of their seats for days. 

“The level is extremely high and is getting higher in each edition of the race,” says race director Christoph Weber. “In this race if you make a little mistake the other athletes will quickly leave you behind. Anything can happen!”

TAMRON IN SEARCH OF LIGHT WITH ZOOOM

Internationally renowned lens manufacturer Tamron earned its reputation as early as 1957 when it became the first company to develop interchangeable lenses for SLR cameras. Since then, they have been the driving force behind many revolutionary new lenses, including innovative high-power zoom lenses.

To give the brand an extra push in 2017, Tamron appointed zooom for the delivery of their 2017 summer campaign. The brief was to capture a younger audience and communicate the benefits of their megazoom travel lenses.

To achieve these objectives, zooom has been busy with some exciting keyvisuals and creative concepts for numerous media distribution channels. Keep an eye out for the summer campaign and watch Tamron zoom with zooom!

 

NEW PARTNERSHIP FOR RED BULL ILLUME

BRONCOLOR AND ZOOOM COMPLETE FOURTH EDITION OF GEN NEXT CONTEST

broncolor, the Swiss manufacturer of premium quality camera lights has been a long-standing partner of zooom. Over the years, our 360-degree advertising and communication service has supported them on many exciting projects. One such example is broncolor’s Gen NEXT photography competition. 

With strong experience in event management, zooom came up with the concept back in 2014. The idea was simple; kit out a small group of upcoming photographers with broncolor gear, let them coordinate their dream shoot and select the best photographers to become brand ambassadors. To do this, we built an intuitive website for the event and have provided graphic design and website updates ever since.

We are proud to announce that the fourth annual edition of the contest has come to a close and the winners have been chosen. Click here to find out more about the contest, or head over here to see more of our work with broncolor.
