April 2013 Photo Contest

DPG is very proud to announce the winners of our April monthly photo contest


The theme for April was “Turtles” and the winner of the Ikelite Coolpix L28 housing and camera ($400 value) is Montse Grillo. Montse wow-ed the judges with her great shot of two turtles apparently kissing.



Montse also nabbed the silver medal with a trio of turtles in one shot. A close third place went to Kadu Pinheiro for his purple, pastel backdrop to a turtle at the surface. 



We wish we had a bigger winner’s podium at the DPG offices, because there were more than just three shots worthy of placing in the monthly contest. Here’s some of our other favorites: 





As always, a big thank you to our all-star team of judges, who help sift through hundreds of images each month- DPG editors Matt Weiss, Joseph Tepper, and Katy Danca Galli, Keri Wilk, Jeff De Guzman, Steve De Neef, Tobias Friedrich and Mark Fuller.

And a very special thanks to Ikelite for supplying the sweet prize.

Congrats to the winners and all who entered—and here’s a reminder to submit your best black and white shots to the May monthly contest, open now! The deadline is May 31st at midnight.
