Due to strong interest and a number of requests, the deadline for the Arctic Biodiversity "Through the Lens" Photography Competition has been extended until 14 August 23:59 GMT. Below you will find further information about the competition.
The Conservation of Arctic Flora and Fauna (CAFF) Arctic Council Working Group in celebration of the Arctic Biodiversity Congress invite you to participate in the Arctic Biodiversity Through the Lens photography Competition.
One grand prize winner will receive a trip to beautiful Rovaniemi, Finland. Selected images will be displayed at the Arctic Biodiversity Congress 9-11 October 2018 in Rovaniemi, Finland, and be exhibited across Arctic countries.
The competition welcomes entries across four categories; landscape, biodiversity, peoples of the North and business and science in the Arctic. Young photographers are especially welcome to submit and the competition has special prizes for young photographers under the age of 18. Award-winning photographers Carsten Egevang, Gyda Henningsdottir, Einar Gudmann, Krista Ylinen and Lawrence Hislop will judge winning entries.
The eyes of the world are turning northwards. Arctic landscapes, wildlife, cultures and light have inspired people since time immemorial. The Arctic Biodiversity Through the Lens photography competition is intended to celebrate the beauty of the Arctic as experienced by photographers of all skill levels. Further information can be found at the Arctic Biodiversity Through the Lens Photography Competition and in the terms and conditions.
