"Ski is Life" official image of the BBK Mendi Film Bilbao Bizkaia 2022

"Ski is Life" is the main image of the 15th edition of the Mendi Film, the winning photograph of the Poster BBK Mendi Film Bilbao Bizkaia award at the CVCEPHOTO contest.

A spectacular ski photograph taken in Zauchensee, Austria, by the Slovenian photographer Sandi Bertoncelj that has earned him the honor of repeating as an image of our festival as he also did in 2020 -with "Into the Light"-.

The photograph "Ski is Life" takes us to a perfect day of powder. The skier throws that energy of total enjoyment. And the photographer sure didn't walk far from fullness!

Camera: Canon EOS 5D Mark3 - Lens: Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS USM - Aperture: f/2.8 - Speed: 1/6400s - ISO: 100.

The event will involve the participation of several awarded photographers and in addition to the awarded photos, we will enjoy “A White Dream” movie by the French filmmaker Matheu Le Lay, an attractive documentary about the job of a wildlife photographer Jérémie Villet around the cold landscapes of Yukon, trying to photograph the elusive mountain goat.
