We work incredibly hard at ShAFF to make sure that we have the best selection of adventure films we possibly can.

We announce the winners ahead of the festival to allow the audience to make sure they see the best films of the year and decide whether they agree with our judges.

Awards - We have a panel of judges who view all films screened at ShAFF and declare winners and runners up in each of the following categories:

  • Best Film
  • Best Climbing Film
  • Best Bike Film
  • Best Running Film
  • Best Ski & Board Film
  • Rab Best Spirit Of Adventure Film
  • Best Artistic Film
  • Best Short Film*
  • Best Soundtrack
  • Best Adrenaline Film
  • Best Women In Adventure Film
  • Best Film Made In Sheffield
  • Best Road Cycling Film

Either £100 or equivalent value in equipment will be awarded to the winning film in each category, with £200 to the Best Film winner.

There is also a Judges Special Prize
