“Best of Show” and Animal Behavior (Gold) – Ralph Pace


DivePhotoGuide and Wetpixel are proud to announce the winners of the 2017 DEEP Indonesia International Underwater Photo Competition. In conjunction with the Our World Underwater International Photo and Video Competition, the contest makes up what is known as the “superbowl” of underwater imaging competitions, offering more than $100,000 in prizes.

This year’s DEEP Indonesia contest attracted thousands of entries from all over the world, with photographers vying for awesome travel prizes to Indonesia, Fiji and Papua New Guinea, as well as amazing equipment prizes.

Special congratulations to Ralph Pace, who earned the “Best of Show” award with a fantastic image of a pelagic feeding frenzy in the waters of Mexico’s Revillagigedo Islands. This year’s judging panel included professional underwater photographers Amanda Cotton and Daniel Botelho, Scuba Diver AustralAsia and Asian Diver Editor Alice Grainger, Wetpixel Editor Adam Hanlon, and DivePhotoGuide Photo Editor Lia Barrett.

The full set of winning images can be viewed on the Underwater Competition website, and will be published by supporting media partners worldwide. As with all Underwater Competition contests, 15% of proceeds will be donated directly to marine conservation efforts.
