Did we mention you can enter paintings into our VIMFF Photo Competition? The very talented @micaylagatto entered this sweet piece - Adventure Awaits - but took a painting prize for another piece of hers! Want your photo (or painting!) to be featured on our Instagram page? Tag @theVIMFF and hashtag #VIMFF2018 when posting your amazing mountain-oriented or outdoor adventure photos, and we will choose one per week as Editor’s Pick. We will feature your winning image on our account and offer you free entry for that image to the 2018 VIMFF Photo Competition. Yep, that means free entry for your chance to win cash, trips and prizes! ************** (By tagging and/or hash tagging your image, irrespective of winning the entry, you give us the right to use it, with credit to you in the post, for marketing and promotion associated with the Vancouver International Mountain Film Festival, free of royalty)

Now that the 2016/2017 VIMFF Photo Competition has wrapped up, with some spectacular entries and much excitement, we have launched into the 2017/2018 Instagram Competition – WELCOME!

The Instagram competition (read the Competition Rules) runs as follows:
- You post your mountain-related image to your Instagram feed with hashtag “#VIMFF2018” and/or tagging us (“@theVIMFF”)
- We will review all hash-tagged images and select roughly one per week as a “winning image”
- The winning image will be reposted on our Instagram feed, website, and elsewhere
- The winning photographer will receive an Instagram message from us telling them they have won, and how to submit the winning image for free to the main 2017/2018 VIMFF Photo Competition (only valid for the image posted to Instagram, or the original image used for the posting)

Please remember that you posts must have been taken by you – reposts, licensed images, etc are not valid.

We are looking into periodic “people’s choice” mini-competitions to give more to the weekly winners – watch this spot!
