Countdown to “The Shootout” 2018
By Joseph Tepper, June 5, 2018 @ 01:06 PM (EST)

Two continents. Two hemispheres. Two climates. One winner.

“The Shootout” – which pits two teams of macro underwater photographers against each other – is only a couple weeks away. Team Lembeh won the first edition of The Shootout, and it’s being led again by Alex Mustard. Halfway across the globe in Norway, Keri Wilk will try to lead Team Gulen to sweet, sweet victory.

The Shootout aims to hold the highest ethical standards. “The rules state simply that participants and guides may not touch subjects and that behaviors, positions or subjects in locations that do not occur naturally will result in the images being disqualified,” write the organizers. 

There will be three rounds: nudibranchs, fish/invertebrates and wide angle. Each round will be accompanied by live voting from admirers across the globe. Even if you can’t jet set to Norway or Indonesia, you will be able to follow along with live coverage published on various media outlets like DPG and Wetpixel.
