Mountainfilm Photo Contest Continues, More Gear Up For Grabs!


The Mountainfilm Festival is one of the premiere events in the adventure film community. Held in Telluride, Colorado, the festival has grown into an annual event that combines art and a passion for outdoor adventure, while focusing on pressing social and environmental concerns as well.

This year’s festival is set to run from May 28th through the 31st, and in the weeks leading up to the event, the organizers have been running an online photo contest on the festival’s blog, The Conversation. In the second round of the contest, they’re seeking submissions of photos that exemplify the festival’s mission statement, which simply reads: “Mountainfilm is dedicated to educating and inspiring audiences about issues that matter, cultures worth exploring, environments worth preserving and conversations worth sustaining.”

Photos can be wide ranging in their subject matter, with beautiful landscapes, snapshots of amazing places, images that capture the essence of a culture, and so on. They’ll post weekly winners on the blog, and each month they’ll select one of the photos to win a prize. For March, they’re giving away a sweet looking Mazama backpack, courtesy of Jansport. They’ll also throw in a Men’s Woody Jacket and a Woman’s Skylar Jacket from Horny Toad. That’s not all! For a grand prize, they’re also giving away a “VIP Festival Package” that includes lodging for the festival, allowing you to experience one of the best adventure film fests in the world first hand.

To enter the contest, simply upload your photos to the Mountainfilm Flickr Pool. Be sure to include a title and description when you complete the upload. That’s all there is to it, and if you have a great photo, you may be on your way to Telluride at the end of May. Good luck! (Note: The contest is for U.S. residents only)
