Mammut and NEClimbs Photo Contest Rules
Submit your two best climbing photos. Each month our esteemed panel of judges will select the three best climbing pictures; rock, ice, or alpine. Monthly winners will win a Mammut coffee mug and a giant Mammut sticker and be eligible for our grand prize - a pair of Mammut climbing shoes of your choice! Special consideration will be made by our judges for pictures taken of climbs in New England and the Northeast in general. Sick moves, crazy costumes (no nudity, please!) and photos capturing the spirit of climbing are a plus! Good luck! Mammut
