Got photos?

The organizers of the Banff Mountain Photography Competition are looking for the best mountain shots for the 15th annual event.

There is over $4,000 in cash and gifts up for grabs. Winning photographers will also have a chance to exhibit their photographs at The Banff Centre, online at their website and have the images included in a whirlwind, worldwide tour. Entry deadline is Friday, April 30. For more information on how to submit photos, contact

Closer to home, the RMOW is looking for Olympic photos to include in a new rotating exhibition which will be installed outside of Whistler Medals Plaza in mid-May.

The exhibit will include 20 images selected by representatives from the RMOW, the Whistler Museum and Archives Society, Whistler Arts Council and Public Art Committee. They will be on display for three months before being replaced by 20 new images. Photo credits will be provided for all selected images. All images submitted to the exhibition will be posted on to become part of the RMOW's Games-time photo database, which has no commercial use. Any time the photo is used, the photographer will be acknowledged.
