The "Memorial María Luisa International Mountain and Nature Photo Contest" is created as a means of remembering María Luisa Alvarez Alvarez, as a mountaineer who lived friendship intensely in the mountains and everywhere.
Yet it is in the mountains where her joy, her songs and the nostalgia for the happy days that we lived with her will remain for ever. She died in a mountain accident on 18th November 1990.
For this reason, the founders of this Memorial, named after her, decided that the mountains, nature and any thing related to them are the subject of the photos.
