2021 ArcticNet Photo Contest

In addition to conducting high level Arctic research, ArcticNet researchers, students, managers and partners have been remarkably successful in sharing their scientific adventures to understand the impacts of Arctic climate change with the general public and other stakeholders. The stunning photos collected as part of ArcticNet related activities are an essential element of our outreach efforts.

ArcticNet photos have been featured in dozens of prominent national (Gazette, Ottawa Life, Globe and Mail, UpHere, Above & Beyond, Canadian Geographic) and international (Time Magazine, GEO Magazine, Washington Post, Le Monde, Al Jazeera) print and electronic media publications. Our photos have also illustrated numerous policy relevant documents (Canada's Northern Strategy, Canadian Polar Commission reports, AANDC reports).

Internally, ArcticNet photos are used to visually enhance ArcticNet's communication material such as the Annual Report, display booths and public presentations. ArcticNet’s annual photo contest is an opportunity to share your dynamic and eye-catching photos of the Canadian Arctic, its people, communities, landscapes, wildlife and research activities. Over $1500 in cash prizes are awarded at ArcticNet's annual scientific meeting in December.

We would like to congratulate the winners of the 2021 ArcticNet Photo Contest.
