GoPro Mountain Games – Mountain Click Photo Competition

Do you have the eye of the tiger? We’ll be the judge of that. Amateur and professional shutterbugs are welcome.

We are on the hunt for the best photo of the 2019 GoPro Mountain Games. For the 2019 GoPro Mountain Click photography competition, photographers will have four days to capture the action on any camera they would like, including a GoPro camera.

This year, the photo competition will be broken down into two categories – PROFESSIONAL and AMATEUR. Each participant may enter only one category. Only difference: pro winners will receive the higher payout and the competition will be a little stiffer.

Important note for media: In 2019, GoPro Mountain Games’ accredited media are eligible for the photo competition.

Working photographers of any kind who commonly earn money from photography must register for the professional category. Professional photographers who submit photos to the amateur category will be disqualified.

The top photo chosen from the professional category will take home $2500 and the top photo chosen from the amateur category will take home $750. An honorable mention will also be named in each category with a payout of $750 for the professional category and $250 for amateur category.
