One of Paul’s penguin photos has earned him the prestigious Wildlife Photographer of the Year award! Read about it on the National Geographic News Watch Blog.
Whether he’s swimming with leopard seals in Antarctica or mastering aerial shots from his ultralight plane, Paul Nicklen has made a specialty of photographing the planet’s polar regions. Growing up among the Inuit in Canada and working as a biologist in the Northwest Territories habituated him to extreme conditions. A viral phenomenon (his YouTube videos have received millions of hits), Nicklen dove beneath Antarctic ice for a feature story on emperor penguins for the November issue of National Geographic.
Attendees will be eligible to win an Antarctica wall map from National Geographic Maps.
Presented in conjunction with DC Fotoweek.
Watch Paul Nicklen describing an amazing encounter with a leopard seal in a video that became a YouTube sensation in 2009:

Inspired by a walk across the Sahara, National Geographic photographer George Steinmetz taught himself to fly a motorized paraglider, then mastered the art of capturing stunning photos of desert landscapes from above.
