Antarctica Day is coming up this December 1st! This date marks the 58th anniversary of the day the Antarctic Treaty was opened for signature, establishing Antarctica as a place of peace and international scientific exploration. To celebrate Antarctica Day 2017, we are organising a photo competition, Antarctica Alive!. We encourage you to submit your best Antarctic photos for the two following categories:
- Antarctic teamwork in the field
- Antarctic fauna
After this deadline, it's time to vote! Voting will be open from 25 - 30 November 2017 and instructions on how to vote will be distributed when the voting opens. The Winners will be announced on Antarctica Day, 1 December 2017.
