Note that the winning and second place photos in each category will be submitted to the national FMC competition to be judged in September. There are some very worthwhile prizes for placegetters in this competition (GPS, coffee table books etc).

Any questions email .

*FMC defines human element:

The definition of a “human element” is flexible but the general intention is: Where the photo contains as anything other than as a very minor feature: people, a hut, a track sign/marker, bridge, ice axe and anything else that has been introduced by humans into the environment then we would define that as having “a Human element”. But if a photo has what could be called a Human Element but that element is very small, inconsequential and not a feature in the photo then you could count it as “No Human Element”.
