One grand prize winner will receive a trip to the beautiful Ilulissat Icefjord, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Selected images will be displayed at the Arctic Biodiversity Congress December 2-4th, 2014 in Trondheim, Norway, 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, and includes a special prize for a young photographer. Award-winning photographers Carsten Egevang, Paul Nicklen, Einar Gudmann, Cristina Mittermeier 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.
