DPG and Wetpixel are proud to announce the winners of this year’s Our World Underwater International Underwater Photography and Video Competition. Known as the “Superbowl” of underwater imaging events, the competition celebrates both the art of underwater photography as well as the beauty of the ocean.

Once again, our celebrity panel of judges went through thousands of images and videos taken by novice to professional photographers from around the world. $55,000 in prizes were awarded to the winners, who represented a dozen countries.

Congratulations to Hong Kong photographer Yatwai So, who won “Best of Show” for his beautiful first place image of a juvenile sweetlips from the Macro Unrestricted category, and to all the winners and honorable mentions in the various categories.
