Nominations are now open for the CVCEPHOTO International Mountain Activity Photo Contest organized by Club Vasco de Camping Elkartea, mountaineering club from San Sebastian (Spain).
The goal of the CVCEPHOTO contest is to promote mountain activities through photography, serving also as a meeting point and promotion of the authors. It counts with the collaboration of the Bilbao Mendi Film Festival, a mountain film contest attached to the International Alliance for Mountain Film. The CVCEPHOTO contest values, in addition to the creativity and aesthetic quality of the works, the value of the activity reflected in them, counting for it with a jury formed by mountain photographers, as well as expert mountaineers.
Club Vasco de Camping Elkartea is a non-profit organization with over 4000 associates. It was declared a “Public Interest Entity by the Basque Government in 2011 and all its management and workforce are based on voluntary work by its members. Following the same principles, the contest is therefore also non-profit and is only made possible thanks to the combined work of all the volunteer members.
