2017 Marmot Photography Awards

Photography Awards 2017 Banner, 181 kb

UKClimbing and UKHillwalking are proud to announce the shortlist for this year's Marmot Photography Awards.

The format is the same as last year, with automatic selection for the top five photographs in each category based on the votes received over the last 12 months. We have put each of these five photos on display so that you can vote again for the photo(s) you deem most worthy. None of the previous votes are counted, so the slate is clean for each photo - it is up to you to decide who wins!

Voting closes at midnight on 31st January, with the final results - and brilliant prizes from Marmot - being announced in February. For 2017 we will once again be publishing the finalists in a high resolution Digital Feature format.

In addition to the category awards we also have three overall winners (1st, 2nd, 3rd), which will be selected by professional photographer Tim Glasby. Tim has worked closely with Marmot for many years, with images of all their key athletes to his name - Steve McClure, Lucy Creamer, Neil Mawson, Jack Geldard, and Leah Crane - to name a few. Alongside his choices he will be including a paragraph on why he has made each selection, just to provide a bit of background on his thinking.
