In celebration of Antarctica Day on December 1st, we are excited to introduce the PEI & IACS Photo Contest—an initiative dedicated to fostering virtual collaboration and elevating the visibility and appreciation of polar regions. As a pivotal component of this initiative, we are set to unveil the exhibition The Frozen Frontier through the Lens: A Polar Research, where the stories behind these captivating polar research photographs will take center stage to improve awareness, inspire, and engage our community in the enthralling realm of polar science. 
We extend a warm invitation for you to be an integral part of this journey by contributing your creative vision to our contest and participating in the upcoming exhibition.
Your involvement will not only enrich our celebration of polar regions but also contribute to a collective effort to highlight the invaluable importance of polar research.

Submission Period: December 1, 2023 - January 31, 2024
- Selection Period: The determination and announcement of the top three winning photographs, along with the additional selection of 17 photos for the exhibition, will take place in late February or early March 2024.

A total of 20 photographs will be chosen, and the selected photographers will have the opportunity to be interviewed for the exhibition The Frozen Frontier through the Lens: A Polar Research, fully sponsored by our partner, the International Association of Cryospheric Sciences (IACS). IACS is granted permission to utilize the submitted photos for their designated purposes. Photo credit will be given to the photographers.
