Rapha Condor Sharp Film Competition
COMPETITION NOW CLOSED
Win the chance to shoot and direct a short film, following the Rapha Condor Sharp Team at their training camp in 2012.
Rapha and Condor are offering a young filmmaker the chance to shoot and direct the 2012 Rapha Condor Sharp team short at their training camp this coming February. The winner will be flown to the camp to spend a week with the team and will see their film form an integral part of the team’s marketing for 2012. The final film will be displayed to large audiences across a variety of platforms, including the Rapha, Condor and team websites and throughout online media.
The Rapha Condor Sharp team, with its distinctive style and attitude, dominated the British cycling scene in 2011 and were the UK’s number 1 ranked British Continental team. For 2012, the team has changed direction to focus on the development of under-23 riders. This brings a new set of challenges, so we are looking for a young filmmaker who, with a sensitivity towards the sport, can tell the story of young riders at the beginning of their cycling careers.
Rapha has a strong portfolio of films and we are looking for a filmmaker who can match our already high standards, while bringing a fresh insight to what it means to be an under-23 rider in a pro Continental team. Creative and new approaches to the documentary format will be welcomed and the winning candidate will work closely with Rapha and Condor to create a new and exciting film. The film we are looking for is an honest portrait of the experiences of young riders that is innovative in style but also humorous and reflective.
How to Apply
Applicants should submit their idea in 300 words, including suggestions for shots both on and off the bikes. This should be accompanied by five photographs you feel illustrate your idea, either in the form of direct narrative or in a more conceptual way.
Submitted treatments will be used to shortlist five filmmakers who will be invited to a workshop in London in January, at which the winning candidate will be chosen.
The winner’s work will gain huge exposure in a high-profile medium that will be promoted both in the UK and around the world. Rapha Condor Limited will retain the global copyright of the final films but copyright of entries and any content produced by the shortlisted entrants at the workshop will remain with the filmmakers. All candidates will, however, agree to allow Rapha and Condor to exhibit their work both online and offline.
The judges’ decision is final.
Entries will be judged by Ben Ingham, Basia Lewandowska, Claire Beaumont and Ultan Coyle.
Submit your entry by email to: firstname.lastname@example.org by the 17th January.
- Be over 18
- Be available to go on the training camp from the 11th to 21st February 2012 and hold a valid passport.
(Flights to the training camp will only be provided from the UK, France or Germany. Entries from outside the European Union are welcome but all necessary visas are to be organised by the winning entrant.)
- Have examples of previous film work available, viewable online (blog, YouTube, Vimeo etc).
- Feel confident in pitching a treatment that meets this brief.
- Be able to attend the workshop in London in early 2012.
Film and sound equipment will be provided following consultation with the winning filmmaker.

The ambition of Rapha Condor was always beyond achieving race victories. We have a different ethic and a desire to draw more people into the sport.
Since its first season in 2006, Rapha Condor, and more recently Rapha Condor Sharp, has become an iconic fixture of the British racing scene. Through its numerous race victories and its distinctive style and attitude, the team has inspired a loyal and passionate following in the UK and overseas.
The riders for 2012 are a blend of proven race winners and raw talent. The team will also continue to take on a small contingent of international riders, until such a time that the wealth of British talent is enough that a team can be entirely made up of UK riders. In 2012, London’s all-important Olympic year, the team will retain Olympic team members Andrew Tennant and Ed Clancy MBE, Gold Medallist at the Beijing Games. The team will also continue to gain experience from former National Champion Kristian House, as well as the longest serving member of the team Dean Downing. All of these riders bring a wealth of influence and experience to the team, and will play an active role in mentoring the six domestic U23 riders.
