Polar Bear and Brunnich's Guillemots
Polar Bear and Brunnich’s Guillemots

Today I received the news that my picture of a Polar Bear climbing down the Alkefjellet bird cliff was highly commended during the Global Arctic Awards 2014 in the Polar Bear category. I feel honoured and proud to find my picture in between this series of great Arctic images. The image is a great memory, shows rare behaviour and inspires me to keep making images like this, showing this fragile world to the outside world.

But first, I enjoy my ‘prize’.
