For Photographers

ArcticNet is always looking for fresh, dynamic and eye-catching photos of the Arctic, whether they are of people, northern communities, landscapes or wildlife. We are especially interested in photos that depict research conducted in the Arctic.

ArcticNet is committed to communicating its knowledge of the impacts and opportunities of climate change in the coastal Canadian Arctic to its partners and the Canadian public. First and foremost, photos submitted to the ArcticNet Photo Gallery are used to visually enhance ArcticNet communications products (e.g. annual report). Images are also available for use by media in their efforts to communicate Arctic science to national and international audiences.
