The Emerging by Black Diamond category is specifically created to shine a light on the youngsters, the newbies, the fresh talent, and essentially the next generation of adventure and action sports photographers. This is a category that levels the playing field, giving everyone 25 years and younger an opportunity to compete at the same level as the pros and they did not disappoint!
We are super stoked to finally share the unbelievable creativity coming out of these photographers who made it to the semi-final stage:
Kristiyan Dimitrov Markov
Aarón Sio Pretel
Patricio José Díaz Rios
Our partner and sponsor of this category, Black Diamond, is all about climbing and skiing and is known for engineering the best gear possible. Everyone was super stoked to have them on board, especially the young photographers. Why? Well, because the category winner of Emerging by Black Diamond wins a three-day photoshoot with the equipment and apparel manufacturer. On top of that, they’re rewarding a prize for the Best Mountain Photo with a product deal worth up to $5,000 which will be shared with the public at the winner’s unveiling at the end of the year.
A new collection of semi-finalists will be announced every week, so make sure you follow us on social media and visit our website to stay up to date.
