Award-Winning Arctic Photographs

Örvar Atli Þorgeirsson / Iceland

The Global Arctic Awards host a yearly international photography competition highlighting images from the North. A panel of judges considers submissions in a wide range of categories, including landscapes, wildlife, and ethnography, as well as more specific categories such as northern lights and iceberg images. The images showcase the diversity of Arctic scenery, cultural traditions, and animal life. The competition is chaired by Aleksey Anisimov, and over 100 awards are distributed each year from photographic societies around the world. Here we present a selection of images from winners of the 2015 Global Arctic Awards. View a selection of the 2014 winners here.
