Arctic Terns at Blomstrandbreen, Spitsbergen Esther Kokmeijer Every year around spring, the International Arctic Science Committee (IASC) publishes its yearbook. Around 1500 copies of the IASC bulletin are widely circulated by mail and distributed at the Arctic Science Summit Week. For graphics and photographs we depend solely on what our members and scientists send us. For the publication of the yearbook 2018, which will appear in June next year, and other IASC publications such as the website, brochure and calendar, we are looking for new photographs. We welcome images depicting all areas of arctic science: ranging from scientists in the field, animals, landscapes, to everyday life on the work floor and much, much more..

Although we are not able to pay for the copyrights, we of course mention the photographers name and (if required) the institute he or she works for. The photographer always receives a copy of the print by regular mail. The image quality must be around 3500 x 2500 pixel.

With each photo we would appreciate:
• a short description about what we see and background information on the project/research;
• place;
• name of photographer / Institute;
• contact information.

You can upload your pictures here, and fill in the form for description here.
You can also send pictures along with the information written above via e-mail.

We thank everyone who takes the effort to send in their photos. However, we usually receive more photographs than we can place and therefore have to make a selection based on geographical and thematic representation. We only notify the photographers who's contributions are selected for publication.

Unless, indicated otherwise, we will assume that we are free to use the photograph for any IASC involved publication. Non of the photographs in our database are used for commercial purposes. Should we receive a commercial request we will always refer the inquirer to the photographer.

If you have any further questions feel free to contact IASC Secretariat.
