The organization of CVCEPHOTO announces the upcoming edition of the contest, which is accepting registrations.
CVCEPHOTO is the International Mountain Activity Photo Contest organized by the mountaineering association Club Vasco de Cam in Elkartea from San Sebastian, Spain.
The theme of the contest is “MOUNTAIN ACTIVITY” which covers Any image related to sports activities (non-motorized) that take place on mountains. For instance: alpinism, climbing, skiing, trekking, speleology, paragliding, etc.
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 on 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.
The participants authorize CVCEPHOTO the rights to the reproduction of the submitted works for expositions, catalog printings, web publishing, and any other media outlet that the CVCE considers to be of interest to promote the contest.
The CVCE will always communicate the author’s name. This authorization is without any limitation regarding time or place. Due to the partner relationship with BBK MENDI FILM BILBAO-BIZKAIA and the FIFAD, the CVCEPHOTO organization will make an effort to publicize the awarded works and their authors during the celebration of these international festivals. In all cases, the intellectual property and copyright of the works will remain with the authors.
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 201 1 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.
