SIPAContest Photo of the Year
Growing up in a small fishing community in northern Norway, Audun has a lifelong fascination with the Arctic’s rough nature and culture, both above and below the ocean’s surface.
Photography for him is about sharing his fascination of the Arctic coastline with the revelation of new and unusual perspectives.
Since he started photographing in 2009, his images have won several awards, including the Wildlife Photographer of the Year Portfolio Award, the Overall Award in the Nature’s Best Contest, Arctic Photographer of the Year, Nordic Nature Photographer of the Year and other firsts in several international competitions.
While he remains a part-time photographer, he works as a full-time biology professor at the University of Tromsø.
