Our World Underwater 2012 Kicks Off!
By Joseph Tepper, February 18, 2012 @ 03:09 AM (EST)

Editor's Note: This is the first day in a series of coverage. Stay tuned to DPG for daily updates and coverage from the Windy City.

The DPG crew touched down in Chicago early Thursday morning, eager to get going to the 42nd year of Our World Underwater. Of course, one of the highlights at the show is the grand reveal of the 2012 Our World Underwater DPG/Wetpixel contest-- but more on that to come soon!

For now, we set up the gallery with all of the amazing images and watched as the crowds 'oo-ed' and 'ah-ed' at the well-deserved winners. Make sure to check back regularly, as we will be releasing the official announcement of the winners very soon.

Here are some more highlights from the first few hours of one of the world's largest consumer dive shows:
