Who may enter
The competition is open to anyone.

The competition is organised by the Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity, located in Banff, Canada.

The competition format is the photo essay. At its simplest, the definition of a photo-essay is a set or series of photographs that are intended to tell a story or evoke emotions in the viewer. We invite photographers to submit photo essays to illustrate their mountain related stories whether they are culture, adventure, wildlife, sport, environment, or natural history.

Each essay submitted is to consist of 3 to 5 images. 

Images must have been taken within the last two year (2018 – 2020).
