Does your work take you to the equator or the poles? Either way, now’s your chance to show off the travel perks of your research.



Best Vintage Shot

Dig through your archives for old photos – extra credit for legitimately monochrome shots.



Best underwater shots

Anything just below the surface to 10,000 meters counts.



Best on Deck (or Dock) Deployments

Shots of focused scientists and hilarious Niskin bottle mishaps both qualify.



Good luck and happy snapping!
