For 11 years, Rapid Media has been producing the very best paddling magazines, growing the number of canoeing and kayaking enthusiasts worldwide. For the past two years, Rapid Media has been a proud partner of the ACA and ACA members directly benefit from the partnership. ACA members get a free subscription to any of Rapid Media's magazines exposing them to the great things happening in the greater paddling community.
Not only does Rapid Media produce cutting-edge magazines, they put on the Reel Paddling Film Festival (RPFF) showcasing the world's best paddling films to audiences in the United States, Canada, and around the world. The RPFF is in its 8th annual year and inspires more people to explore rivers, lakes, and oceans, push physical and emotional extremes, embrace the lifestyle and appreciate the heritage of the wild places we all love to paddle.
The RPFF is a film contest awarding winning films in 10 categories. The Winner and other shortlisted films are then toured to more than 100 cities around the world, screening for an audience of more than 30,000 paddling enthusiasts. The ACA is a proud sponsor of the RPFF and will be featuring it at our National Paddlesports Conference this September in Bend, Oregon.
