Contributor Rewards Program

Welcome to the Contributor Rewards Program, a program set up for Contributors to Outdoor Project. We at Outdoor Project are excited to have you engaged in contributing your energy and expertise to a wonderful website that we hope will inspire people to get outside and take advantage of the limitless opportunities to explore the great outdoors. Our goal is to make the adventure contribution process as smooth as possible, so you can spend more time exploring and making media to share your experiences with our users. And we are so thrilled to have your input that we at Outdoor Project have created this program to give you rewards, including cash, for your contributions.

But before you begin the Contribution process, please take a few minutes to review the details and disclaimers associated with the Contributor Rewards Program. It is important that you understand the details of how the program works, as there will be some flexibility on how you choose to earn Adventure Points, which points will add up to create specific rewards in addition to Annual and Perennial Shares of the Cash Rewards Pool.

Glossary of Terms:

Adventure Point – An Adventure Point is earned by Adventure Contributions and various additional actions taken by the Contributor and approved by Outdoor Project.

Adventure Submission – An Adventure Submission is the media content and information that any one Contributor may provide to Outdoor Project in association with pre‐selected outdoor adventures and is provided for the purpose of publication. Media content and information include, but are not limited to, submitting media files (i.e., photography, videos, etc.), GPS coordinates, and write‐ups.

Adventure Contribution – An Adventure Contribution is an Adventure Submission accepted for publication by Outdoor Project. Outdoor Project, at its sole discretion, has the right to approve any Adventure Submission for publication as an Adventure Contribution.

Annual Share – An initial Annual Share is earned after a Contributor earns 25 Adventure Points in a given calendar year. For each additional 10 Adventure Points earned by a Contributor in the same calendar year, one additional Annual Share will be earned by a Contributor. At the end of the summer 2013 season, a Contributor’s tally of Annual Shares will be computed as a percentage of the entire pool of Annual Shares earned by all Contributors in that year, and the result can be converted into rewards. See “Converting Annual and Perennial Shares into Cash and Other Rewards” below.

Cash Rewards Pool – Outdoor Project will create an annual Cash Rewards Pool to be paid out to Contributors. The Cash Rewards Pool will be equal to 10% of the business’ gross revenues (receipts from membership dues, advertising, and other sales) for the calendar year. Half of the Cash Rewards Pool will be paid out on a pro rata basis to the holders of Annual Shares for that year, and the other half of the

Cash Rewards Pool will be paid out on a pro rata basis to the holders of Perennial Shares for that year. A Contributor can be paid from both the Annual and Perennial pool if he or she has earned both Annual and Perennial Shares in the same calendar year. For example, if the total sales of Outdoor Project in a calendar year are $1,000,000, the Cash Rewards Pool will be $100,000. Half of that amount ($50,000) will be paid out pro rata to holders of Annual Shares and the other half ($50,000) will be paid out pro rata to holders of Perennial Shares.

Contributor – A Contributor is a person who has been accepted by Outdoor Project to submit Adventure Submissions, including media files, to be published on our website and who has satisfied the requirements set forth in “Participation in the Contributor Rewards Program” below.

Contributor Rewards Program – The Contributor Rewards Program, also referred to here as the “Program” or the “Rewards Program,” is the collection of all of the information contained in this document as it pertains to content submitted by a Contributor to Outdoor Project for publication on our website, and the rewards earned by the Contributor by Outdoor Project for such content.

Perennial Share – An initial Perennial Share is earned after a Contributor earns two Annual Shares in a given calendar year. For each additional two Annual Shares earned by a Contributor in the same calendar year, one additional Perennial Share will be earned by a Contributor. At the end of the calendar year, a Contributor’s tally of Perennial Shares will be computed as a percentage of the entire pool of Perennial Shares earned by all Contributors, and the result can be converted to cash and other rewards. Unlike Annual Shares, Perennial Shares do not expire at the end of the year; a Contributor can continue to convert Perennial Shares to cash and other rewards for as long as the Contributor Rewards Program exists. See “Converting Annual and Perennial Shares into Cash and Other Rewards” below. Please Note: It is the intention of Outdoor Project starting in January 2014 to increase the number of Annual Shares needed to earn Perennial Shares.

Participation in the Contributor Rewards Program:

To participate in the Contributor Rewards Program, a Contributor must meet the following requirements:

  • Must be age 18 or older.
  • Must sign a Media Use Agreement (this Contribution Reward Program being Exhibit A to the Media Use Agreement) and Personal Injury Waiver.
  • Must own the necessary equipment to serve as a Contributor, including a functioning GPS device to record GPS tracks and waypoints for an adventure (with the exception of certain adventure types that do not require GPS tracks and waypoints), a digital still or video camera, and a vehicle or another means to arrange transportation to and from adventures.
  • Must apply to Outdoor Project to gain admittance to the program and be accepted by Outdoor Project in its sole discretion.

To become a Contributor and participate in the Contributor Rewards Program, a Contributor applies to the program by submitting an application to Outdoor Project (see “Applying to be a Contributor” below). Upon acceptance as a Contributor, the Contributor is enrolled in The Contributor Rewards Program and may begin to accrue Adventure Points (see “Earning Adventure Points” below).

Adventure Points are converted to rewards. Rewards include a free annual membership after the Contributor earns 15 Adventure Points in a calendar year, Annual Shares based on earning sufficient additional Adventure Points in a calendar year and Perennial Shares based on earning sufficient Annual Shares in a calendar year. A Contributor’s Adventure Point tally for a given calendar year starts and ends on the first day and last day, respectively, of that calendar year.

Applying to be a Contributor:

If you are interested in becoming a Contributor to Outdoor Project and participating in the Contributor Rewards Program, apply online at http://www.outdoorproject.com/content/get‐involved/become‐ contributor. An application must include examples of outdoors and nature photography and/or video and a writing sample. You may be requested to provide additional materials for evaluation purposes as part of the application process. Outdoor Project will review application materials and, generally within 1‐2 weeks of receiving a complete application, will let you know whether you have been accepted as a Contributor. Outdoor Project has established a high bar for the quality of media displayed on our website and may have finite resources available for reviewing and publishing Adventure Submissions; therefore, we regretfully cannot accept all applications, and any application may be denied in our sole discretion. If your application is denied, you must wait at least six months before reapplying to be a Contributor.

Creation of Contributor Account:

Upon Contributor application being approved, an Outdoor Project Contributor Account will be created for the applicant. If the applicant is already an Outdoor Project Member, the account will be upgraded to Contributor status. Note: A Contributor account provides the equivalent to FREE premium membership to Outdoor Project. Unless otherwise approved in writing, should a Contributor not have any Adventure Contributions published within one (1) year of account’s creation, the Contributor account will be deactivated, or reverted back to Membership status.

Selecting Activities for Adventure Submission:

Outdoor Project will maintain a library of adventures from which Contributors can select. An adventure is reserved by a checkout system, ensuring that no duplicate adventures are submitted by different Contributors. Once checked out, a Contributor will have three weeks to complete the Adventure Submission and to submit the Adventure Submission to us. Different adventures are worth different numbers of Adventure Points depending on the time and effort we estimate will be needed to properly complete the Adventure Submission. Each adventure will be marked indicating the number of Adventure Points the adventure is worth.

At times, we may offer Adventure Points for completing certain tasks identified by Outdoor Project that we believe will improve adventure content on the website. Such tasks may include taking additional photographs or compiling additional data for an existing adventure, photographing nearby accommodations, or for verifying content submitted by other users.

At times you may be interested in completing an Adventure Submission for an adventure that is not currently posted on Outdoor Project website and is also not available for checkout from the library of adventures. In such an instance, the following procedure will apply:

  1. Review Outdoor Project’s current list of desired adventure types and regions in which we have content online or are seeking addition content for publication to determine if the Adventure Submission you want to complete fits within one of these types and/or regions.Prior to going out into the field, review website to determine if another Contributor has already completed part or all of the Adventure Contribution for this adventure.

3.Once you have completed steps 1 and 2, you may contact Halvor Tweto at Outdoor Project to determine if Outdoor Project believes that the Adventure Submission is appropriate and desired and to confirm that another Contributor is not working on or has not already completed the adventure.

4.You may also submit the Adventure Submission for the desired adventure at your own risk, recognizing that another Contributor may have already completed the Adventure Contribution or that Outdoor Project may reject the Adventure Submission for any reason.

Adventure Submission Requirements:

We have prepared submission guides for the various types of adventures that may be completed by Contributors for inclusion on Outdoor Project website. The goal of the guides is to make sure that a Contributor has a list of everything that must be provided to support an Adventure Submission and to enable a Contributor to earn the full number of Adventure Points available for a given Adventure Submission. Additional information on the photography, write‐up, and GPS data associated with an Adventure Submission is as follows:

Photography The following standards must be met for all photographs that are part of an Adventure Submission:

Contributors will have the ability to submit three types of photographs:

oMain Publication Photographs (Required) – Select roughly the best 5‐30 photos to highlight each adventure.

oFlora and Fauna Photographs (Optional, but recommended) – These photos are intended for the purpose of adding to the website’s published library of flora and fauna species. A maximum of 45 flora and fauna photos can be submitted with the Adventure

Submission.

oInformational Photographs (Optional but recommended) – These photos will not be published but are intended to be used by Outdoor Project in order to ascertain particular information to assist copy editors and map makers in publishing the

Adventure Contribution on the website. Informational photographs may include, but are not limited to, information boards along interpretive trails, books, trail and road signs, as well as flora and fauna photographs that are not of a quality suitable for publication but are of value in identifying species. A maximum of 45 informational photos can be submitted with the Adventure Submission.

Photographs must be minimum roughly 6 MP (horizontal 3,600 x 1,800 pixels, and vertical 2,000 x 3,000 pixels)

Photographs must be submitted digitally in .jpg or.png formats. Photographs submitted as .png files should only be used for photographs with unusual proportions, such as panoramic photos, where transparency is desired within the website’s standard photographic field.

All photographs, with the exception of informational photographs, must be self‐edited. This includes, but is not limited to, horizon line correction (should be horizontal), appropriate levels adjustment, cropping, and the removal of lens spots.

Photographs must be in color.

Photographs containing people must be candid photos, unless a “set up shot” is necessary to convey a story that you think our users will find of significant value.

Photography should be both journalistic and artistic in nature. We want to tell a story about the experience in a linear fashion that makes sense to viewers when they are flipping through the photographs, but you also want to make sure that they are artistic and highlight your talents and skills as a photographer. However, “artistic in nature” does not include excessive post‐ editing or over filtering. The photography should look natural.

Photography must be submitted in either landscape or portrait, but not both, for any one adventure. There are constraints regarding the website layout; an adventure needs to be presented in either a horizontal or in a vertical layout.

We want users to see a variety of views. Some of the photographs should capture large‐scale items such as broad vistas, an entire mountain, etc., and others should capture smaller‐scale items like rocks and flowers.

Photographs may have a mix of shots with people and without people. Per the Media Use Agreement, you must provide us with a copy of the written permission you have obtained from all identifiable people photographed agreeing that their picture may be published on our website.

Anything that makes the adventure special should be photographed and documented with the GPS coordinates of the specific location (i.e., picnic area, all campsites, restrooms, key viewpoints, etc.).

For Hiking and Backpacking only: We encourage you to take photographs of any unique plant species (i.e., trees, flowers, bushes, mosses, lichen, etc.) seen along the way. If you have an opportunity, also photography any animals seen. Don’t worry about identifying the species by name; Outdoor Project will determine the species as necessary.

Videography – The following standards must be met for all videos submitted as part of an Adventure Submission:

Submission of videos is optional

Contributors may submit either short films or individual video clips

In regards to short films:

oVideo size must be a minimum of 1,280 x 720 pixels

oVideos should be roughly 2‐5 minutes in length

oVideos must be a minimum of 29 frames/second

In regards to individual video clips:

oEach clip’s size must be HD, minimum of 1,920 x 1,080 pixels

oEach clip must be a maximum of 2 minutes in length

oEach clip must be a minimum of 29 frames/second

Write‐up – The following standards must be met for all write‐ups submitted as part of an Adventure Submission:

It must include any references used to write the copy (i.e., book, website, etc.).

The date that the adventure was completed. Start and end dates should be provided for multi‐ day adventures.

A list of directions in bullet‐point format for how get to the starting point of the adventure from the nearest metropolitan area.

All key information on the adventure. Key information required for the different types of adventures are included on the submission guides for that adventure type.

Main narrative/description of the adventure (between 150‐300 words). Additional style points on the narrative/description as follows:

o Narrative/description should be positive in nature and cover the basic highlights.

o Cross referencing other nearby or similar adventures is desired, so emphasis should be made on including nearby highlights or similar adventures where possible in the write‐ up.

o In order for our content to be educational in nature, each narrative should touch on at least one of four key education topics in a manner that directly relates to the experience of the adventure: flora and fauna, the geology, natural history, and human history.

Field notes (i.e., GPS Waypoints and their significance, plants you saw, special memories, anything that might be needed for map making, etc.)

Potential advertisers. We request that you compile roughly 3 to 6 business names for small businesses operating on the way to or nearby the adventure. This will be important for generating promotional deals and accommodation pages on the website. Types of business to consider include, but are not limited to, accommodations, bars, restaurants, gear stores, and guiding services. We will be calling these businesses later, so a polite and positive manner is required if you talk to proprietors or workers at any of these businesses.

GPS Tracks and Waypoints – The following standards must be met for all adventure submissions:

A .GPX file containing both Tracks and Waypoints for each adventure. Tracks should start at the trailhead or route and stop at the endpoint of the adventure route.

Earning Adventure Points:

Adventure Points are earned by completing an Adventure Contribution or a smaller set of tasks associated with an adventure as requested by Outdoor Project, or, as requested by Outdoor Project, by verifying information submitted by another Contributor for specific adventures. See the Adventure Points Table for more details. Completing an Adventure Contribution requires having the Adventure Submission, task and/or verified information accepted by Outdoor Project, in its sole discretion. At times, Adventure Points may be awarded as prizes in raffles or competitions setup by Outdoor Project.

There is no limit to the number of Adventure Points a Contributor can earn in a given calendar year. At the end of the calendar year, a Contributor’s total Adventure Points for that calendar year are tallied up. The total number of Adventure Points for the following calendar year starts at zero. However, if a Contributor is approved to begin contributing to Outdoor Project starting on or after October 1 of the calendar year, he or she may elect in writing to carry over all of their Adventure Points to the following calendar year, and if a Contributor is approved to begin contributing to Outdoor Project starting on or after July 1 of the calendar year and before October 1 of the calendar year, he or she may elect in writing to carry over half of their Adventure Points to the following calendar year. For example, if a Contributor is accepted into the Rewards Program on October 2, 2013 and accrues 13 Adventure Points before the end of the year, he or she could elect in writing to carry all 13 Adventure Points over to his or her Adventure Point balance for 2014 and accrue no Adventure Points for 2013. Similarly, if a Contributor is accepted into the Rewards Program on July 2, 2013 and accrues 13 Adventure Points before the end of the year, he or she could elect in writing to carry 6 Adventure Points (half of the 13 Adventure Points) over to his or her Adventure Point balance for 2014 and the remaining Adventure Points will expire at the end of 2013 without being eligible to be used for any reward.

Becoming a Sponsored Contributor:

Outdoor Project is seeking partnerships that will allow us to “sponsor” Contributors who earn a predetermined number of Adventure Points in a given season. Incentives may include, but are not limited to, free or discounted gear and equipment, outfitter discounts, retailer discounts, perks and/or other rewards. Because “incentives” will be provided by Sponsorship Partners and not directly from Outdoor Project, we cannot guarantee the availability, quantity or nature of these incentives. Upon earning 28 Adventure Points in any given season, a Contributor will become a Sponsored Contributor for the following season.

Becoming an Elite Contributor:

Becoming an Elite Contributor is based on the same value‐add proposition as becoming a Sponsored Contributor, but is a more challenging status to achieve. Upon earning 55 Adventure Points in any given season, a Contributor will become an Elite Contributor for the following season.

Earning Annual Shares:

Upon earning 25 Adventure Points in any given calendar year, a Contributor will earn one initial Annual Share. For each additional 10 Adventure Points earned during the same calendar year, a Contributor will earn one additional Annual Share. For example, a Contributor that accrues 64 Adventure Points in a calendar year would earn four Annual Shares, and if that Contributor were to have accrued one more Adventure Point, ending the year with a total of 65 Adventure Points, the Contributor would have earned five Annual Shares.

Earning Perennial Shares:

Upon earning two Annual Shares in any given calendar year, a Contributor will earn one Perennial Share, in addition to the Annual Shares they have also already earned. For each additional two Annual Shares earned during the same calendar year, a Contributor will earn one additional Perennial Share in addition to the Annual Shares also earned. Unlike Annual Shares, Perennial Shares do not expire at the end of the year; a Contributor can continue to convert Perennial Shares to cash and other rewards for as long as the Contributor Rewards Program exists. For example, a Contributor that accrues 54 Adventure Points in a calendar year would earn one Perennial Share in addition to the three Annual Shares also earned in that calendar year, and if that Contributor were to have accrued one more Adventure Point, ending the year with a total of 55 Adventure Points, the Contributor would have earned two Perennial Shares in addition to four Annual Shares.

Converting Annual and Perennial Shares into Cash and Other Rewards:

Within ninety days after the conclusion of the calendar year, Outdoor Project will determine the final size of the Cash Rewards Pool, computed by taking 10% of the year’s gross revenues (receipts from membership fees, advertising and other sales). Half of the Cash Rewards Pool will be paid out to holders of Annual Shares, and the other half will be paid out to holders of Perennial Shares. A Contributor’s cash payout will be computed by taking the total number of Annual and/or Perennial Shares held by the Contributor at the end of the calendar year, divided by the total number of Annual and/or Perennial Shares held by all Contributors at the end of the calendar year, computed as a percentage of the total Cash Rewards Pool. For example, if in any given calendar year (i)the total number of Annual Shares is 500 and Perennial Shares is 200 for all Contributors, (ii)the Contributor holds 7 Annual Shares and 3 Perennial Shares, and (iii)the total Cash Rewards Pool is $100,000, the Contributor would earn $700 (7/500 x $50,000) from his or her Annual Shares and $750 (3/200 x $50,000) from his or her Perennial Shares, for a total of $1,450.

Outdoor Project will take all reasonable efforts to distribute cash rewards to Contributors by April 1 of the following year. To receive a check for the full cash reward, a Contributor must make sure that contact information, including a current mailing address, is provided to Outdoor Project.

Outdoor Project is required to provide any Contributor earning over $600 of cash rewards in a given calendar year a 1099‐MISC for federal income tax purposes. It is the responsibility of a Contributor to accurately report all cash received by Outdoor Project for tax purposes.

Contributor Prizes + Rewards:

Each season, Outdoor Project will create prizes + rewards for Contributors based on their Adventure Contributions. These rewards will vary seasonally based on promotions offered by partnering/sponsor businesses, Outdoor Projects success, and the quantity of active Contributors.

For example, the prizes for the Winter 2012‐13 season were as follows:

For the MOST Adventure Points earned:

oMost adventure points earned were as follows.

1st Prize: Apple iPad (or the choice of any of the other prizes for 2nd thru 4th Place listed below)

2nd Prize: GoPro HERO3 Black Edition Camera

3rd Prize: $150 REI Gift Certificate

4th Prize: $70 Toro Bravo Gift Certificate

oA Contributor must earn at least 30 Adventure Points to qualify for the 1st and 2nd Prizes listed above. If no contributor earns a minimum of 30 Adventure Points, these Prizes will not be given out at the end of the summer 2013 season.

For the BEST Adventure Contribution:

oBest adventure contributions were as follows:

1st Prize: GoPro HERO 3 Black Edition Camera or a $300 REI Gift Certificate, plus two Perennial Units in addition to any Perennial Units earned during the winter 2012‐13 season.

2nd Prize: GoPro HERO 3 Black Edition Camera or a $300 REI Gift Certificate, plus one Perennial Unit in addition to any Perennial Units earned during the winter

2012‐13 season.

oThe best Adventure Contribution will be determined based on the creativity of the adventure, the quality of the media (photo and/or video) and the quality of the written copy. It will be judged solely by Outdoor Project.

All Contributors that earn a minimum of 12 Adventure Points will be submitted into a raffle for one of two $50 REI Gift Certificates. Raffle details as follows:

oEach winner will only get one entry into the raffle, regardless of the number of Adventure Points earned past the 12 Adventure Point minimum.

Prizes and Rewards will be distributed at the Awards Ceremony following each season.

Contributor Rewards Program Caveats and Disclaimers:

The following caveats and disclaimers are for your review. Please make sure you understand and are willing to comply with these caveats and disclaimers to take part in the Contributor Rewards Program.

It is understood that the Contributor is not an employee of Outdoor Project. Outdoor Project will not provide fringe benefits, including liability, workers compensation, health insurance benefits or any other employee benefit for the Contributor. If Contributor should be deemed to be an employee of Outdoor Project, Contributor will reimburse Outdoor Project for any payments made or assessed in connection with Outdoor Project’s failure to make contributions, including contributions to FICA and unemployment insurance, and failure to withhold income for federal and state income taxes.

If a Contributor does not keep his or her contact information up‐to‐date with Outdoor Project, he or she may invalidate and forfeit the cash rewards due to him or her at the end of the calendar year. Maintaining accurate contact information is the exclusive responsibility of the Contributor.

Outdoor Project, in its sole discretion, has the right to add, remove or modify any content on the website. Outdoor Project is under no obligation to accept or publish all or part of an Adventure Submission sent by an approved Contributor.

Outdoor Project has the right, in its sole discretion and for any reason, to notify you that you may no longer be a Contributor and to terminate your further participation in the Contributor Rewards Program.

While we hope to continue the Contributor Rewards Program indefinitely, Outdoor Project has the right, in its sole discretion and for any reason, from time to time to modify the Contributor Rewards Program in any manner it determines or to discontinue the Contributor Rewards Program at any time.
