UKClimbing and UKHillwalking are proud to announce the line-up for this year's Photography Awards.

The format is the same as last year. An automatic selection of the Top 5 photos in each category has been made based on the votes received over the last 12 months. We have put these 5 photos on display for each of the main categories so that you can vote again for the photo(s) you deem most worthy. None of the previous votes are counted and the slate is clean for each photo (these are in fact duplicates of the originals which have been left in people's galleries). Voting closes at midnight on 31st January, with the final results - and brilliant prizes from Marmot - being announced in February.

How to Vote

To vote simply click through the range of images, then follow the instructions below. You can vote for as many photos as you like, but there is a limit to one vote per photograph. Alternatively, click here to visit the Competition Gallery in its entirety.

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 - just 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.
