Scholarship Winner: Seth Anderson

Seth is an avid mountain lover and professional photographer who wants to create a life dedicated to adventuring, exploring and photographing the world around him. It is because of Seth's passion for summiting new peaks and his drive to establish new routes up high mountains in his community and abroad, that he was the perfect candidate to win the scholarship. 

With lofty goals of summiting 8,000m peaks, Seth also wants to get into ice climbing and glaciated mountaineering where he's inspired to explore the high peaks of Selkirks, Bugaboos and Karakoram. 

You can follow Seth's adventures here at or on Instagram at @seth.b.anderson. Some of his favourite brands are Marmot, Black Diamond and Edlerid- known for their high-performance outdoor apparel and climbing gear.
