2 pictures in the Global Arctic Awards 2013

Very happy to announce that two of my pictures got selected at the Global Arctic Awards. My picture of the Polar bear mother and cub got the first prize in the category Polar Bears, and my picture of the Musk oxes fighting a snow blizard got a Gold Medal prize from Jury member Aleksandr Miaskov.

My pictures will be shown in a travelling exhibition all over and starts in April in Moskow! Very excited to see that! My congratulations to the other winning photographers, and I look forward to meet them: http://www.arcticawards.ru/

A new year has started, and I hope to be back in the Arctic again soon! At least twice visits to Svalbard are planned again this year, and tomorrow I’m off to Norway to photograph eagles and Killer whales! Let’s hope it will be a ‘cold’ year again, with lot’s of snow and ice 😉

Here are my two winning pictures, and two more from myself in Norway.
