Yuri Kozyrev and Kadir van Lohuizen (NOOR) were awarded the 9th edition of the Carmignac Photojournalism Award dedicated to the Arctic and chaired by Jean Jouzel, and under the patronage of Minister Ségolène Royal, French Ambassador for the Arctic and Antarctic Poles.

The endowment allowed them to carry out their pioneer double polar expedition «Arctic: New Frontier». For the very first time, two photojournalists have simultaneously covered the entire Arctic territory to bear witness to the irreversible effects of climate change. They wanted to experience the dramatic transformation of natural landscapes and the demographics in the Arctic, and the impact of these changes on the lives of the region’s inhabitants.

The forces of tourism, militarisation, exploitation of gas and mineral resources, and the opening of trade routes mean that the Arctic is today the site of clashes between countries and multinationals who are locked in a chaotic competition for control of these zones, which have taken on strategic importance in the history of humankind due to the effects of global warming.
