The heart of Iceland

Icelandair Stopover magazine cover image competition

This summer, we launched a cover image contest for the first time, open to photographers everywhere. We got thousands of submissions, all depicting the various aspects of Iceland. Naturally, choosing a winner was a challenge! The winner of this first-ever contest is Amii Palmer from the United Kingdom, whose rendition of the ice-shaped heart of Iceland won us over. Congratulations Amii!
