Enter Guylian’s Seahorse Photo Competition
By Joseph Tepper, June 22, 2018 @ 12:47 PM (EST)

Photo competition prizes are very tempting—luxury liveaboards, photo gear, or gift cards. But it’s hard to beat chocolate as an encouragement to enter a contest. Belgian chocolate-maker Guylian is running its biennial seahorse photography competition.

The goal is to raise awareness for the threats facing the oceans’ seahorses. The 7th “Seahorses of the World” imaging contest is now accepting entries with prizes including not only chocolates, but lighting kits from Hugyfot and dive gear gift certificates. 

An international panel will judge the entries along with professionals with Project Seahorse. Criteria include scientific, artistic, and creative value. As well, there will be 20 photos declared popular winners after a public vote.

Fill out the contest form here. Once this is complete, you can send up to five seahorse images to seahorses@nelos.be. The deadline for the competition is July 2, 2018 with the winners and awards disbursed in November. Have an awesome "pink" seahorse image? Make sure to also enter it in the second Think Pink Photo Competition, which has its own set of prizes and is for a good great cause.
