Judging Criteria

Criteria for Judging

Entries will be judged by a technical panel consisting of scientific experts in the field of cryosphere as well as experienced professional photographers. Entries will be judged on:

  • Technical quality, clarity, and composition, and visual impact
  •  Overall effectiveness of the photos and the caption in conveying a compelling story on interactions between the cryosphere and society. Therefore, the choice of subject and how you choose to describe it in the entry submission form is very important.
  • Novelty, flair for the unexpected, ability to capture a photo-perfect moment, ”wow” factor
