Are you ready to go into the wild?

LAist relies on your reader support.
Your tax-deductible gift today powers our reporters and keeps us independent. We rely on you, our reader, not paywalls to stay funded because we believe important news and information should be freely accessible to all.

First of all, if you haven't seen the wonderful Into the Wild make plans to do so right away. It is one of the rare films that exploits the full power of cinema to transport you into another world and into the consciousness of another person (my enthusiastic review of it is here, tickets here, preview here, music here). After seeing it, I imagine you'll be ready to go on a little adventure of your own and Lonely Planet is giving you the opportunity.

All you have to do is submit a 2-minute video of a moment where you felt truly free or connected to nature. With all the filmmakers in Los Angeles and all the wild places to visit in California, there's no reason an LAist reader shouldn't win the whole shebang! The winner and a friend will get to choose between hiking through the Wyoming wilderness, skiing in Idaho, mountaineering through the North Cascades or sea kayaking in Alaska. Good luck!
