The Global Arctic Awards host a yearly international photography competition featuring Arctic and Northern images. 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 or 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 2014 Global Arctic Awards.
