Judging Criteria

Criteria for Judging

Entries will be judged by a technical panel consisting of professional photographers/editors and scientific experts in the field of climate change and resilience. Entries will be judged on:

  • Technical quality, clarity, and composition; visual impact.
  • Overall effectiveness of the photos and accompanying essay in conveying a compelling/interesting story on mountain resilience in relation to the themes of the chosen category. Therefore, the choice of subject and how you choose to describe it in the entry submission form through the essay are very important.
  • Novelty, flair for the unexpected, ability to capture a photo-perfect moment, ‘wow’ factor, etc.
