2010 Our World Underwater Photo & Video Competition Winners Announced
By Matt J. Weiss, February 23, 2010 @ 01:23 PM (EST)
The winners of the 4th annual Wetpixel & DivePhotoGuide international underwater photography & video competition in association with Our World Underwater have been announced. This could possibly be the best set of winning images I have ever seen.

What was particularly special about this set of winning images was the creativity in technique, composition and subject selection displayed by the winners. There were winning images of fairly common subjects like stargazers and mantis shrimp, but shown in a new way.

Macro Traditional Gold - Keri Wilk
Macro Traditional Silver- Keri Wilk

Additionally, not all the winners were of tropical Indo-Pacific species, as three awards went to photographs of lily pads.
Wide Angle Tradition Silver- Fredrik Ehrenström

Lastly, we saw some amazing composition, as highlighted by David Barrio's Best Of Show shot. Congratulations to all the  deserving winners!
Best Of Show - David Barrio

A special congratulations goes out to Keri Wilk, who almost swept the competition with 3 golds, two silvers and an honorable mention. Well done, Keri.

The judges of the competition included  Eric Cheng, David Doubilet, Ric Frazier, Alex Mustard, and Berkley White  for still categories and Steve Douglas, Eric Hanauer, and Mary Lynn Price for video categories.  You can read a statement by the judges here
