Extreme Environment Photographic Competition

Entries are now open for the Extreme Environment Photographic Competition, presented as part of the Antarctic Centennial Year 2011-2012.  The competition is managed by Antarctic Tasmania Science and Research, an agency of the Tasmanian State Government with offices in Hobart.  The competition seeks the most striking images from the polar and sub-polar regions, and offers one of Australia’s richest prizes for a single image – the Trafalgar Prize for $AUD 5000.

Previous competitions have seen entries from Europe, Australasia, South America and the United States, including entries from serving expeditioners on Antarctic national bases.  Finalists and prize winners are selected by a distinguished panel of judges which includes noted professional photographers.  Entries are open to both professional and amateur photographers.

Download the entry form, which includes details of the prize qualifications and rules of competition.  We invite you to consider entering the competition and hope that you will circulate this notice and its attachment to any one of your contacts who might be interested.

Submissions close absolutely on 18 March, 2011 and entries must reach us in Hobart by close of business on that day.  Special arrangements exist for serving expeditioners in Antarctica – all others must submit their images by post on CD or DVD.  Entry forms may also be downloaded from the Antarctic Centennial Year website at:  www.antarcticcentennial.tas.gov.au
