The IPA Photography Contest was established in 2021 to acknowledge amateur photographers and provide them with the opportunity to inform, inspire and entertain the international permafrost community.
The contest theme is announced at the beginning of the year and the international permafrost community is encouraged to enter up to three photos. The entries are judged on originality, composition, overall impact, and embodiment of the contest theme by the Executive Director and two members of the Executive Committee. The winner (€100) and runners-up (€50 ea.) are announced in the annual Frozen Ground Newsletter of the same year. Contest themes and entries are available below.
