Welcome to 

Name This Photo” Contest!


Once a year, a rare image of aurora will be chosen for show and put on this website for receiving “Title Entries” from viewers worldwide.  Each image shall have a basic story-line describing each scene to accompany it.  Email submissions of prospective print titles for the “Name This Photo” Contest will be judged by an independent panel of judges for the final title selection.  The winning entry will receive, free of charge, a signed first edition custom print of the photo.  (Photos will be a 12”x 18” for standard image ratios {at 1:1.5} or an 8/10/12”x 30/32/36” for panorama ratios available.)  Winning title, name of the winner and their country of origin will be noted on this page and on The Alaska Collection’s Blog.
