The 30th Anniversary of the Toughest Race on Earth
The Toughest Race on Earth - The Story is an exciting project for the fans and followers of this race world wide.
We are raising funds for the coverage of this race and the production of a 100 page coffee table souvenir book of its 30th running.
We will bring more immediacy and high quality video features, interviews and daily uploads of images to the social media sites of the organization.
Our images and media show the race in all its glory, the beautiful relationship between man and dog, the sheer toughness of this unforgiving climate, the emotions felt by mushers, handlers, followers and the dogs too...
Most importantly, we tell the stories from along the trail, not just take pictures...
We will bring the stories in the race to life.
The best of the images will be selected and published in the 100 + page coffee table souvenir book. Also selected images from the participants of the pre- and post-race workshops will also be included.
The funds we raise will cover the publication costs, expedition expenses and the team's ability to travel the trail, upload and produce for you.
This project has no financial affiliation with the Yukon Quest, and no money raised here will go to the organization.
Below are some of our images from 2012.
Risks and challenges
The biggest challenge will be selecting the images that will make up the book - in 2012, the team shot more than 10,000 still images, and countless hours of video. People all have different tastes and preferences, but throughout the process of covering an event, we strive to tell a consistent, coherent story.
The publisher we've tentatively selected will be a big help with the other big obstacle, that of layout. We will opt for getting assistance from the publisher to help with layout and other choices that will need to be made when going to press so that we end up with the most beautiful book possible.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
