The International Centre for Integrated Mountain Development (ICIMOD) and the Mountain Forum (MF)/Asia Pacific Mountain Network (APMN) are jointly organising a Global Digital Photo Contest to mark the 25th Anniversary of ICIMOD, whose slogan is "For Mountains and People". On 5 December this year, ICIMOD celebrates its 25th birthday. A series of events have been planned throughout the year, and the digital photo contest is one of the most important ones.
Not surprisingly, the theme chosen for the Digital Photo Contest is "Mountains and People". It encompasses the following four categories:
  • Mountains - Geo/physical elements (mountain range, massif, mountain landscape, high altitude rangeland, bodies of water, waterfalls, rivers, etc)
  • Mountains - Hazards/Disasters (landslides, floods, earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, potentially dangerous glacial lakes, mud-slides, dangerous roads, trails & river crossings, etc)
  • People - Livelihoods (farming, shifting cultivation, grazing, hunting, fishing, transhumance, trade, porterage, tourism, etc)
  • People - Culture (festivals, shamanism, rites of passage, dance , ethnicity, etc)
The top two entries will receive the ICIMOD Hindu Kush-Himalayan Prize and the Mountain Forum Global Prize. In addition, four Special Mentions will be awarded, one for each category. The "top 50" entries may be exhibited in select Hindu-Kush Himalayan countries.
  • The contestants may only submit entries that they hold copyrights to.
  • The contestants must accept that participation in the contest constitutes agreement to allow their entries to be used by ICIMOD and/or MF for non-commercial promotional purposes (in publications, calendar, screensaver, websites, exhibitions, etc). Due credit will, of course, be given to the copyright-holder each time his/her entry is used.
  • The contestants may not submit entries which they have contributed to ICIMOD/MF in the past, or which have already been used elsewhere in whatever form.
  • The contestants may not submit digitally manipulated entries ( eg composite image).
This contest is open to anybody from anywhere in the world.

Each contestant may submit up to 4 entries. How you want to distribute your maximum quota of 4 entries among the categories is up to you.
You may, for example, submit all your 4 entries on CULTURE, OR 2 entries on GEO/PHYSICAL ELEMENTS, and 2 on HAZARDS/DISASTERS, OR 1 entry on each of the four categories , OR 3 on LIVELIHOODS and 1 on CULTURE, etc.
