For the March International Polar Week we ran a photo competition. There were four categories to submit your photo to (data, landscape, wildlife, fieldwork) and the winners’ photos can be viewed here.

We also released our 2nd newsletter during March Polar Week. You can read it here.


We organised a SCALE mini symposium from 09:00-16:00 on 28 August. The workshop took brought together participants to the recent SCALE cruise, as well as students, researchers, and members of the public. You could also join the symposium via Zoom. Have a look at the summary of the symposium here. APECSSA we would also like to express their thanks to Sarah Fawcett, Katye Alteri, Marcello Vichi and Isabelle Ansorge for their support in sponsoring the event.


In celebration of September International Polar Week we released our first APECSSA calendar and selection of postcards. Photos used were those of the winning entries to our March photo competition. You can download the calendars and postcards for free or order them from us (for a fee) here.
