To further enhance the quality of the book UKC has kindly agreed to host a competition for ACTION photos taken on Skye. The selection process will begin in the next few weeks but this still leaves time to get pictures, especially if the current good weather holds.
Also of interest would be any historical action shots with black and white welcome. There must be some absolute gems hidden in collections of slides and prints as well as from this digital era.
Type of shots required: Primarily shots of summer or winter climbs on the Island are needed. There is a shortage of photos of Cuillin climbs as opposed to views. Particularly sought are photos capturing the scale and magnificence of the surroundings as well as having climbers in good positions (see attached picture- FA Crib Route, VS 4c TD Gap). Scrambling photos would need to be exceptional as would any shots of the In Pinn or Cioch.
Please post entries on the UKC competition page (The closing date is 1st June.)
Prizes: Photographs used will be paid at £25 each or £50 for a front cover shot. Four copies of the book will be given to the best UKC entries as voted on by users of the site, whether they are used or not.
