Nordic Photo of the Month Contest

With stunning scenery around every bend, your camera will be put to good use on your Nordic adventure. And once your trip has ended one of those snapshots can do more than adorn your Facebook wall or be filed away in an album.

Share one of your favourite shots with us and it just might be named our Nordic Photo of the Month!

Aside from heading up Nordic Visitor’s Facebook page and being featured on the Nordic Visitor blog, the winning photographer will score a prize from 66° North, Iceland’s leading outdoor clothing brand.

You can submit any photos taken during your Nordic Visitor tour, and there is no limit to how many you can enter.

Not really, but please try to submit your photos within one month of your Nordic Visitor tour as this contest can end or change at any time.

How are winning photos selected?

A small jury of Nordic Visitor staff chooses one winning photo for each month.

Our judges’ criteria are very open-ended, but creativity, well composed photos with descriptive captions are appreciated. We also take special note of photos that have a lot of likes and/or comments on social media. #NordicVisitor

How are the winning photos used?

Each winning photo is used as the cover image on our Facebook page for a month, until the next winner is selected. That ensures that thousands of our followers will get to see your winning shot.

We might also use photo entries, winning or not, in our blog or other social media (with source credit). See more details below.
