The winners of the 2010 Mountain Click Photo Competition at the ninth annual Teva Mountain Games were announced today, with winners in three categories: Performance, Vibe, and Mountain Magic.
Amateur and professional photographers submitted photos for a chance at cash prizes and the opportunity for first-place winners to have their work published in the October issue of Outside magazine.
