Who We Are
The Navigating the New Arctic Community Office (NNA-CO) builds awareness, partnerships, opportunities, and resources for collaboration and equitable knowledge generation within, between, and beyond the research projects funded by the National Science Foundation’s NNA Initiative. The office builds capacity in early career researchers and provides unique opportunities to inspire and engage a wide audience toward a more holistic understanding of the Arctic—its natural environment, built environment, and diverse cultures and communities.
DEADLINE EXTENDED: NNA 2022 Photo Contest
Deadline extended to August 14, 2022
The NNA-CO is hosting a photo contest to showcase the beauty of the Arctic and its peoples, along with all the remarkable work that goes into NNA research.
We invite your photos of fieldwork, research stations and sites, communities and life in the Arctic (with permissions), wildlife, natural landscapes, and cultural landscapes. Though, all ideas are welcome! There will be prizes for the top three photo submissions, as well as for seven honorable mentions (see below). The NNA-CO plans to use the submitted photos for outreach, engagement, and communications about NNA.Learn more
