Each year our contest seeks creative photographic images ranging in style and technique from traditional to avant-garde, symbolizing the many different world communities that need to come together to overcome today’s daunting environmental challenges. Images selected for prizes and exhibition successfully educate, motivate, or passionately move audiences to engage in preserving our environment!




In addition to valuable prizes awarded to the best photograph in each category (plus the Grand Prize and People’s Choice award), images are seen by regional, national, and international audiences of collectors, curators, writers, and others from the environmental community. We strive to give winners and selected finalists numerous opportunities to be recognized for their accomplishments by showcasing their work in a variety of locations and publications.

Winning images will be exhibited at the American Mountaineering Center in Golden, Colorado; displayed at a high profile location in Downtown Denver that is free to the public; featured on our website and social media; and promoted through press releases and partner publications, with more recognition opportunities to be announced.

All photographers (amateur or professional) from around the globe, using all styles and processes are encouraged to enter.
