Here at A3, we’re always on the lookout for photos of really big avalanches—and the same goes for action shots of explosives in action. What could be more eye-catching? This spring, A3 ran a photo contest in partnership with two of our major sponsors, CIL Explosives and PIEPS, and the results were everything we’d hoped for.
Congratulations to Alan Gordon and Ken Snoy, who ran away with the top two spots. Their images are below.
The Honorable Mentions
Thanks to everyone who submitted photos this season, and please keep an eye out for future opportunities!
Huge thanks to our sponsor CIL for making this contest (and much of A3’s other work) possible. CIL donates a percentage of US sales to A3, so when you buy explosives from them, you’re helping your professional organization.
*** Have a photo you’d like to see in The Avalanche Review, either in print or online? Send your best shots to firstname.lastname@example.org for a chance to be featured. We’re always interested in shots of avalanches in action and remarkable slide paths.
