Alt. +1000 » Competition Alt. +1000:

“Call for photographers
Alt. +1000 Photography Festival will launch its third ­edition in Summer 2013. In the village of Rossinière, in a setting of a rare beauty in the foothills of the Swiss Alps, Alt. +1000 offers visitors from Switzerland and overseas the pleasure of discovering a mountain village with 10 photo­graphic exhibitions located within this charming village.

The photographic work must be based on the theme of +1000 metres altitude. All genres, approaches and techniques are welcome : artistic, conceptual or documentary.
Alt. +1000 is a festival which not only celebrates the high altitude of mountain environments, but high altitudes wherever they are found. The selection of the works will be carried out by a jury of professionals.”

Anybody who is under the age of 40 years old, that is, according to our friend Carl – read his comment regarding this!

    Dear Thomas. Thank you for the link about the 1000+ meters. I just have a comment that I would like to share with you. Mountains can grow old and tall. These add beauty to Countries like Switzerland and Indonesia. But, after reading the rules and regulations of this photo contest, I was sorry to read that it was open to photographers under the age of 40 years old. It seems that photographers can not grow old and (short!). Many contests are open to the young. One day these young will grow old and they will be put on the « side track». I wonder if HCB, if he were still among us, would be permitted to participate. But this does not stop me from admiring mountains such as Semeru, Gunung Api, Bromo, Batur, Agung and so many others in Indonesia. Maybe I will even take photographs of them and make prints to show to my «old» photographer friends.
    Best regards
    Carl Valiquet*
    p.s. To your sentence: Anyone send photographs of Indonesian Mountains, you should add: Under the age of 40.
