Fourth Annual British Splash-In Championship
By Matt J. Weiss, June 2, 2010 @ 04:58 PM (EST)

To all our British readers, this is something you might find interesting. From our friends over at BSoUP, here is the press release for the British Splash-In Championship. 

Press Release


The quest is on to find the UK’s top underwater photographer. The title will be decided at the fourth annual British Splash-In Championship being staged at Plymouth on Saturday, July 3, 2010 by the British Society of Underwater Photographers (BSoUP). The winner of the title – chosen by an independent panel of judges - will be jetting off to the Maldives with a companion to enjoy a fabulous one-week liveaboard trip donated Maldives Scuba Tours.

Said BSoUP chairman J.P. Trenque: “The event is open to any qualified diver or snorkeler and we hope that users of compact cameras as well as those with more advanced equipment will test their skills in this unique way. The winners of the one-day shootouts staged by the various local underwater photographic groups in the UK are also invited to take part.

“All facing the same conditions underwater and working within a specific time frame in the vicinity of Plymouth on that particular day, the battle is to produce the one image that is judged to be the best and worthy of the title.”

In addition to the grand prize, other generous sponsorship for the Splash-In is being provided by Olympus Cameras, AP Valves, Ocean Visions, New Holland Publishers and Sport Diver magazine.
Full details of the event can be found on BSoUP’s web site: http://www.bsoup.org/splash.php
