Martha Tressler wins Wildlife Trusts seal of approval

The search for a new ‘face’ to help promote The Wildlife Trusts’ marine bill campaign is over after Martha Tressler’s picture of a grey seal was selected by judges at the British Society of Underwater Photographers’ annual prints competition which ran alongside the British Splash-in Championship.

Photographers from around the world had been invited to send A4 prints to compete in 3 separate categories – British / Irish waters, overseas and advanced. The pictures were displayed in June and July at the National Marine Aquarium in Plymouth where the public was invited to vote for their favourites. Trevor Rees won both the British / Irish and the overseas categories while Peter Ladell took the advanced category. In addition, judges from The Wildlife Trusts chose four images representing British marine life among the display.
