UKClimbing and UKHillwalking are proud to announce the line-up for this year's Photography Awards. With a new sponsor comes a new format, and due to the absence of a Photography Award last year we have extended this year's to include the best of both 2014 and 2015.
As opposed to previous years, where we have simply announced a single winner from each category, this year we have put on display the Top 5 from each category so that you, the user, can vote for who you deem most worthy. Voting closes at midnight on the 31st December, with the final results - and prizes - being announced in January 2016.
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 additon 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.
Tim has travelled the world on assignment for many of the best clients in the industry, including editorial work for The Times, The IOD, GQ and National Geographic Adventure, and for commercial clients such as Red Bull, Adidas Eyewear, Marmot, Vans and Edelmans Advertising. As an adventurer and photojournalist, Tim has photographed a wide array of assignments; including trekking in the Himalaya, rock climbing throughout Europe, ice Climbing in North America, paragliding in Corsica, back packing in the Scottish Highlands and mountain-biking in France.
