The annual photography competition gives club members a chance to show off their best photos from the year while enjoying good company and an array of pies. External judges determine who will get the prizes, which are generously donated by our sponsors.

Pie and Slide 2018 has passed.

Winning photos can be found in past editions of The Mountaineer.

Even if you can't make the actual event, if you're a club member feel free to still submit photos, with a note that you may not be present, and try to get someone else to read out the description of your photos for you if possible.

Photos submitted need to taken in the last 14 months.

Photos are submitted in any of the following categories (6 photos maximum, 3 photos maximum for each category)

Club Activity

Action photograph of a person/people doing a club activity (e.g. placing protection, skiing, cooking dinner in a snow cave, paddling a waterfall). Photos taken on club trips or featuring club members are preferred.

Faces of the Club

Portraits of Club members, whether it be at the crag, on the trail or at an MUMC social event.

Australian Landscape

Photographs in an obvious club related outdoors setting, where an activity is not necessarily the major feature (e.g. landscapes). Must be in Australia, does not have to be on a club trip.

Overseas Landscape

Photographs in an obvious club related outdoors setting, where an activity is not necessarily the major feature (e.g. landscapes). Must not be in Australia.

Outdoors Nature

Club Personality and Humour

Capture the spirit of the club or one of its members in a single photograph, or a photo of a club member/event which brings a laugh.

Photojournalism

Photographs that tell an interesting story. Here the capturing of the story is more important than the actual quality of the photo. Examples might include the chaos surrounding a rescue, instruction or training.

Photoshop Fantasia

Digitally-altered photos that may imply a story wondrously manipulated to perfection. Usually a goofy creation.

Video

Video of no more than 4 minutes fitting into any of the photographic categories.

Bonus Category (Born to be Wild)

This year, the bonus category is "Born to be Wild". Think, anything to do with MUMC and "Born to be Wild"... A submission to this category won't count towards your total number of photos (6 maximum in total), we may offer a prize, but the point is to make us laugh or be amazed during the intermission!
