Association of Polar Early Career Scientists

ArcticNet is pleased to announce the launch of the International Arctic Change 2017 Conference Photo Contest.

They maintain a collection of photographs highlighting the spectacular beauty of the polar regions, and featuring scientific research, landscapes, wildlife, and northern communities. With a growing compilation of stunning images, the ArcticNet Polar Photography Gallery is now a resource for media, education and various research programs. ArcticNet remains committed to communicating the impacts of climate change in the Arctic and Antarctic to diverse international audiences and preserving a legacy of iconic and inspiring imagery for future generations.

The International Arctic Change 2017 Photo Contest is a fantastic opportunity for Arctic researchers, students, partners and collaborators to share their photographic skills and most compelling images of the circum-Arctic, its peoples and their environment, flora and fauna and research activities.

ArcticNet invites you to dive into your hard drives, cameras and computers, and send them your best shots!

The deadline for photo submission is Friday, 27 October 2017. Contest eligibility criteria and submission details are available on the Arctic Change 2017 website. Winners will be announced and photos showcased at the Arctic Change 2017 in Quebec City in December and over $1000 CAD in cash prizes will be awarded. If you wish your photos to be considered for publication in the ArcticNet Annual Report (available in softcover and digital formats) please submit images before August 21 2017.

Thank you in advance for your contributions.

Have a great field season!
