Association of Polar Early Career Scientists


APECS is happy to announce Fátima Gullino Frazão and Bruno Bôto da Cruz as the winners of the APECS promotional materials design contest – there were so many good contributions that we just couldn’t settle with one! Fátima and Bruno will be working together to put together a final set of publicity materials for the Oslo Conference and beyond. Once complete, the stunning results of their collaboration will be available on the APECS website.

90 APECS members voted in the competition. The first place submission (Fátima Gullino Frazão) won 31 votes and second place (Bruno Bôto da Cruz) earned 21 votes. All other submissions received fewer than 15 votes each. Many thanks to all those who participated!
