The Chris Hadfield World Tour Photo Challenge

Chris portrait Photos of the Photo Challenge

The Chris Hadfield World Tour Photo Challenge launched on June 6, 2012 and ran until Chris landed on May 13, 2013. 866 pictures were submitted from around the planet.

There were two easy ways to participate:

  1. By adding our digital Chris 2D to your photo
  2. By taking a photo with Chris 2D
    • Although the contest is now closed, you can still visit a partner institution and take a picture with Chris 2D or
    • Print your own Chris 2D and take a picture


The three pictures with the most votes will win a mission t-shirt signed by Chris Hadfield. The big winner will have the chance to virtually meet Chris Hadfield during a private discussion via Webcast after the mission (arrangements to be made in accordance with astronaut's schedule).

Congratulations to our winners!
