IPY Press Pack

There is a variety of material available for journalists about IPY.

The IPY Brochure is a colourful hand-out about IPY for a general audience.
This IPY Science Summary gives an brief overview of IPY science and activities.
And here are some Frequently Asked Questions about IPY.

The IPY Scope of Science provides a much more in-depth account of the breadth, variety, complexity and urgency of polar research at the start of IPY.

There are several excellent polar image libraries available with clear copyright information.
In addition, the Alfred Wegener Institute has made these video clips available in time for the IPY launch, filmed from the Polarstern, near Antarctica.

For a look at activities in individual countries, please visit our Launch Page.

My crew and I r extremely interested in everything related to the North Pole and Arctica region. We’ll be pleased to cooperate in any ways to your programs. As an ex fashion photographer, now explorator of the North, I’d love go get such a chance.
