CVCEPHOTO is the International Photography Contest of Mountain Activity organized by the Club Vasco de Camping Elkartea, mountain club of San Sebastian, Basque Country, Spain.
The goal of the contest is to promote the mountain activity through the 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. Our 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.
In this third edition our contest counts as a novelty with a special prize, the “Poster of Bilbao Mendi Film Festival”, which will be chosen from among the photos submitted to CVCEPHOTO, adding this new initiative to those already developed with the BMFF in the first two editions.
Club Vasco de Camping Elkartea is a non-profit organization with 4000 associates. It was declared a “Public Interest Entity” by the Basque Government in 2011 and all its management and workforce are based on volunteering. Following the guidelines that encourage our organization, participation in the contest is free and open to everyone.
