Image Elements: What we are looking for
Theme: The signature image reflects our mountain-themed Festival.
Concept: We look for an image that evokes passion and energy, has a dynamic and enticing landscape and/or features a mountain activity.
Orientation: The image must work well both vertically and horizontally. Most of our marketing materials are vertical (posters, banners, postcards, ads, etc.), but for web and video production, a horizontal orientation is preferred. Many of our winners have been horizontal originals that crop well vertically for marketing materials.
Clean: We incorporate the placement of numerous sponsor logos, so we are looking for images where these can be easily incorporated.
Exposure: We want an image that hasn’t already appeared in a national ad campaign or been featured in magazines.
Free of commercial elements: We want an image without prominent commercial elements such as clearly visible logos.
