Mountain Click Photo Comp 

2012 WINTER MOUNTAIN CLICK PHOTO COMP WINNERS:
Congratulations to all who participated in the first ever Winter Mountain Games Mountain Click Photo Comp.

Our panel of judges, consisting of David Clifford, Lucas Gilman and Keith Ladzinski
have spent hours judging everyones photos and it's official. We have winners. Some winners won in multiple categories and we had our first ever sweep in the Performance category.

From David Clifford, Head Judge:
"Overall I was super impressed with the level of thought and the amount of great images that the photographers brought to the table. It's always tough when you pour out your heart and soul and don't podium but I have to say everyone should be proud of the level of photography that they produced. I really look forward to the Summer Mountain Games and hope to see some familiar photographers back and armed to the teeth with lenses and grins."

How it Worked:
Each judge ranked the top 10-15 images, in each category (Performance, Mountain Magic, Vibe) starting with their favorite (1) lowest to highest (10). If a judge felt a specific photo did not make the top 10 photos it was given an 11.

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

2012 WINTER PERFORMANCE CATEGORY:
"Mad Props to Daniel Milchev who completely swept the Performance Category. Daniel's elevated skill set and keen eye had him clearly in a rank all by himself. I I look forward to watching Daniel's career take a leap and hope that we can shoot side by side again." -- David Clifford

2012 WINTER VIBE CATEGORY:
"The Vibe Category was much closer and trickier to judge. I was super impressed with the emotion that Matt Trappe caught of an Ice Climber who fell and was in anguish. This shot was more photo journalistic and perhaps should have won that category which we should consider for next year. Brianne really set the stage with her phenominal sepia toned portrait of a biker and Eric Bratrud did a fantastic job of catching a glimpse of what it's like to perform in Vail during a snow storm." - David Clifford.

2012 WINTER MOUNTAIN MAGIC CATEGORY:
"Mountain Magic was really a pleasure to judge but also very tough because I thought it was a 2 way tie between Arina Habich for her well executed and interesting take on a sequence and Brianne MacRunnel's collage which was simple yet eloquent and had so many great moments it really showcased what a great event the WMG's was. Douglas had some super graphic and very colorful imagery and I really liked that he used the same technique for all 3 images. They were all strong and I literally spent hours agonizing over who should get 1st, 2nd and 3rd place in Mnt Magic." - David Clifford
