Cascadia 2019 Photography Competition
- Sport: the key element of the photo is one or more people engaging in an activity in the natural environment or mountains – for example, hiking, climbing, or skiing.
- Landscape: the key element of the photo is the physical environment, be it on a small scale such as a rock or a large scale such as a mountain or the ocean; people may be present in the photo, but are not a key element.
- Environmental Stewardship: photos making a statement about our impact on the environment or showing how people are trying to improve the environment. Examples may be people cleaning up a shoreline, or a pollution spill.
- Portrait: a photo the captures the essence of a human being in the context of the natural environment or mountains, or of a person who has been significant or instrumental on the natural environment.
- Wildlife: the key element is an animal; this would typically be a non-domesticated (wild) animal, but may be a domesticated animal (dog, cattle, etc) in the natural environment.
