Opportunity For All Photographers From Amateur Through To Professional

Applications are now open for Banff Mountain Photo Essay Competition 2016. The competition's goal is to showcase the best in mountain-themed photo essays – to recognize the best stories told through a series of still images. If you love mountains and photography, don't hesitate to apply. Deadline is May 12.

Competition organizer is The Banff Centre, a largest arts and creativity incubator in Canada. 

The competition format is the photo essay. The jury is seeking a sequence of images that conveys a compelling story or message – with each image strong enough to stand on its own while conveying a greater narrative when viewed in the photographer’s desired sequence.

Young photographers are encouraged to submit photo essays to illustrate their mountain related stories whether they are culture, adventure, wildlife, sport, environment, or natural history. Each essay submitted should consist of two (2) to five (5) images.

People from all over the world are eligible to apply. 

To apply:

  • A completed entry form
  • Pay the handling fee (CAD 10 per essay, approx. EUR 7)
  • Upload your photographic essay images (no more than 5 images per essay)

CAD 3000 (approx. EUR 2050) prize presented to winning essay.
