'Finding True North' Showcases Nunavut At Its Most Beautiful (PHOTOS)

We know that Canada's north is a gorgeous place, but it rarely looks as beautiful as it does in a Nunavut contest that aims to capture life in the territory, "one photo at a time."

Every week, the Finding True North blog asks Instagram users to tag their photos of the region with the hashtag "#Nunagram," with winners announced every Sunday.

The contest has yielded some absolutely breathtaking photos that show a cold landscape teeming with life.
