Association of Polar Early Career Scientists

Polar Week logo2 01During the APECS International Polar Week Spring 2016, we will organise a fieldwork photo competition, where everyone will be able to vote for the prettiest, funniest, most interesting photo. If you want to participate by sending a photo, send it to and we will upload it for you on our website. Every person participating can send up to two photos. What to submit for each picture?

  • Name, affiliation and email address of the photographer
  • Where and when the photo was taken? (e.g. Tromsø, Norway, February 2016)
  • Permission for APECS to use the picture on its website.

The deadline for submitting a picture will be the 13th of March. You have to be an APECS member to participate. The vote will then take place during the polar week and the photo getting the most votes will be the winner! And of course you can win something! 1st Prize (150 Euros); 2nd Prize (100 Euros) and 3rd Prize (50 Euros). The funds can be used towards the travel costs to a polar or cryosphere related conference of your choice.

You can now vote for your favourite pictures until 20 March 2016. Please go to our poll. The winners will be announced after the voting period ends.
