Capture The Extreme

Following the launch of the Frank Hurley Photographer’s Jacket, a world-first collaboration between Shackleton and Leica Camera AG, we are hosting a photography competition to celebrate the cultures, wildlife and beauty of the planet at its coldest.

The motivation behind the Frank Hurley Photographer’s Jacket is to encourage photographers to continue taking photos through the coldest months; to persevere for that next image when the conditions are doing their best to force you home.

One of the many great aspects to outdoor photography is the unpredictability. Mother Nature doesn’t hang around for you. You have to dig deep, no matter the weather, and be ready if and when it all comes together. It’s often in these tough moments, when your body and mind are tired, that the most amazing events happen. We want to see these moments.
