Explorers' Choice Award: Cast Your Vote

In line with announcing the results of the 2020 Shackleton x Leica Capture the Extreme Photography Competition, we are also launching the Explorers’ Choice Award and invite you to cast your vote for a winner.

In short, there were simply too many fantastic entries across the four competition categories and the Explorers’ Choice Award puts the spotlight on the 25 Highly Commended images that were in the running right until the final call. 

So now it’s time to have your say and vote for your favourite image in the Explorers’ Choice collection. Fill in the form at the bottom of the page and select the image you think deserves to win. The winner will receive a Shackleton Hero Sweater and a Fisherman’s Beanie of their choice. (Voting now closed.)
