Those entries received will be projected sometime during the SouthPole-sium and the winning photo will be chosen by ballot.
Entry 1: The photo of these three penguins was taken on South Georgia—the only place all three species exist together.
Entry 2: Lemaire Channel at sunset.
Entry 3: This photo of penguin and whale bones was taken at Neko Harbor.
Entry 4: This one doesn't really count as the entrant didn't take the photo, doesn't know who did and isn't positive it's Antarctic. In any event, here it is.
Entry 5: Canada Glacier.
Entry 6: Near Edisto Inlet.
Entry 7: Near Cape Adare.
Entry 8: Albatross on Bird Island, South Georgia.
Entry 9: Yankee Bay, South Shetlands,1999.
Entry 10: Photo of 9 of the Discovery crew modelling their fur skins whilst Discovery was being kitted out at East India dock in London in July 1901. In all the various books I have come across, etc, I have not seen where these men are identified individually. I would be quite interested to know their identities if any of the attendees can shed any light. I believe that Petty Officer William MacFarlane (with his distinctive high forehead) is the man third from the left, but I stand to be corrected if any attendees have greater knowledge?

Entry 12: This photo is a particular favourite of mine, taken of the Mid-Winter feast at Cape Evans in June 1912, with from left to right William Archer, Williamson, Crean, Hooper, Keohane and Demetri.
