To kick off 2014, and to celebrate another twelve months of exciting photo entries ahead, we have chosen "Wrecks and Artificial Reefs" as the first theme of the year.  So anything made by humans flies, whether it was sunk on purpose or by accident: cars, ships, planes, sculptures, pyramids, bicycles, bathtubs, you name it.  So enter your three best images for a chance to win a prize bundle from Prawno Apparel.

Entering is easy: use our simple image uploading system to enter an image or select a picture from one of your existing DPG galleries. You can enter up to three images per contest; and best of all, it’s totally FREE!

More About Prawno
Prawno was born from a love of marine life and dive culture.  Underwater photographer Lia Barrett creates each design by pulling imagery directly from underwater imagery.  Among other animals are manta rays from Western Australia, squid from Indonesia, and even a deep sea squat lobster shot from Karl Stanley's submarine below 2,000 feet.  Discreetly placed within the designs are locations and depths at which the marine animals were photographed. 
Prawno is committed to promoting deep sea awareness and supporting ocean conservation and coastal community empowerment projects.  Beyond donating a portion of all proceeds to organizations focusing on these issues, Prawno has partnered with the TruBlue Foundation to create designs to support the protection of the critically endangered Maui's dolphin, and has created an exclusive design to benefit Manta Trust.
