Explorers' Choice Award: Cast Your Vote

As we announce the results of the 2021 ‘Capture The Extreme’ Photography Competition, we also launch the Explorers’ Choice Award and invite you to cast your vote for a winner.

With over 1000 entries submitted to this year's Shackleton x Leica Photography Competition, choosing one winner and four category winners was no mean feat for our judging panel. The Explorers’ Choice Award puts the spotlight on the 25 Highly Commended images that were in the running right until the final decision. Now we want you to have your say and decide which image deserves to win. The submission with the most votes will receive a Shackleton Hero Sweater and a Leica D-Lux camera.

Voting now closed. The result will be announced on 31st March.

Shackleton and Leica would like to thank all the photographers who entered the 2021 Capture The Extreme Photography Competition.
