2011 Mountain Click Winners

dashes-2

2011 MOUNTAIN CLICK PHOTO COMP WINNERS:
Congratulations to all who participated in the 2011 Teva Mountain Games photo competition.

Some really amazing work from a group of very talented photographers.

Our panel of judges, consisting of three judges, had a difficult time selecting one "winner" in each category.

Each judge ranked the images starting with their favorite (1) lowest to highest assigning each image a value based on the number of entries in each category (Performance, Vibe, Mountain Magic). Places for each category were determined by talling the three judges scores for each photo. The competitor with the lowest NET total by all three judges in each category was awarded 1st place. A perfect score would have been 3 for example.

There were clearly a lot of images of sporting moments.

A handful of talented photographers exhibited great insight into capturing a decisive moment, or by catching a genuinely unique vision. This was done by combining unexpected angles, dramatic lighting, or an empathetic eye into the participant's struggle.

Drum role please....

2011 VIBE CATEGORY:
In the Vibe category there were so many soulful and genuine images.
Brianne MacRunnel's image of the mud covered little girl had such a fun, soft and approachable beauty to it. It really embodied the fun side of the Mountain Games.
