The Environmental Photography Exhibition and Reception have become a much anticipated part of the annual film festival. Entries are received and judged each year, with the winners displayed at the American Mountaineering Center during the festival and throughout the spring.  Each year, the selected images are seen by regional, national and international audiences of collectors, curators, writers, and others from the environmental community.

  • Submission Deadline: November 15, 2017
  • Opening Reception: February 23, 2018 – The reception for the photography exhibition happens on Friday night with a keynote address and reception without charge. Complimentary drinks and appetizers are served.
  • Exhibition closes: April 27, 2018

Photographers from all regions and working in all styles and processes are encouraged to enter. The show is seeking a variety of photographic images ranging in style and technique from avant-garde to traditional. This diversity symbolizes the different world communities that need to come together to overcome today’s daunting environmental challenges. The common theme of the exhibition is the images’ ability to inform, motivate or passionately move its viewer. This year there are two divisions: Adults (19 and older), and Youth (under 19).


  • A single winner in each division will win Best of Show and receive a $250 cash award.
  • Two Juror’s Awards will be awarded as well (no monetary award).
  • This year, the exhibition will be juried by Kerry Koepping, Director of Arctic Arts Project from Boulder, Colorado.
