PHOTOGRAPHY COMPETITION -

CALL FOR ENTRIES

LIVE COURAGEOUSLY

Shackleton and Leica Camera AG host Capture The Extreme 2024, a photography competition that celebrates the incredible individuals, landscapes, wildlife and weather events of the planet's most extreme reaches.

The tough conditions of these remote corners often lead to unforgettable moments. These are the moments are the competition's focus (whether captured in previous years, in a faraway country or more locally). To operate in these places, to get the shot, to gather the data, to reach the summit requires great resilience and courage.

This is your opportunity to have your photographs seen and reviewed by our esteemed judging panel of Leica Ambassadors, photographers, explorers and directors, with the opportunity to win a Leica Camera, an all-new Shackleton photographer's jacket and more.

For some inspiration, see the 2020 and 2021 Capture The Extreme results.
