Shackleton has announced the results of its 2021 ‘Capture the Extreme’ Photography Competition, in association with Leica Camera. Now in its second year, the competition celebrates the cultures, wildlife and beauty of the planet at its coldest reaches, where Mother Nature still has the upper hand.
There were more than 1000 entries, with submissions capturing epic landscapes, enigmatic wildlife, vanishing cultures and bold adventures in regions far and wide, from Greenland, Scotland and Patagonia to Antarctica, Svalbard and Pakistan. After much deliberation, the judges (Karin Rehn-Kaufmann, Art Director Leica; Martin Brooks, CEO Shackleton; Conor McDonnell, Photographer and WWF ambassador) have chosen their winners, with the top spot going to Tamara Stubbs and her timeless image captured in Antarctica.
In addition to the winning photographs, Shackleton also asked the public to have their say in the Explorers’ Choice Award, choosing their favourite from the 25 Highly Commended images. More than 3000 people voted and the winner was Wilder Biral’s landscape image captured in Russia.
