We have another selection of awesome prizes to give away, including the hottest underwater photo and video gear as well as trips to some of the world’s top dive resorts and aboard the best liveaboards in the industry. The prizes are awarded to winners in 13 categories, and the grand prizewinner of the Our World Underwater Competition receives $1000 in cash for the image awarded “Best of Show.”
Photographers of all levels can enter, from beginners and compact camera users to professional wildlife photographers and videographers. As previously, the Our World Underwater Competition features technical categories, while the DEEP Indonesia Competition offers themed categories. Once again, the contest judges consist of a distinguished panel of industry experts, including photographers, filmmakers and publishing professionals.
Organizers Matt Weiss and Eric Cheng issued the following joint statement:
“The two competitions that make up the Underwater Competition Series are among the most prestigious in the underwater photography world. We’re always blown away by the exceptional quality of the entries every year, and no doubt our judging panel will have a tough time picking winners this time around as well. We can’t wait to see the images and videos vying for the top prizes!”
The Our World Underwater Competition winners will be announced, and their winning images showcased, at the Our World Underwater exhibition on February 17, while the winners of the DEEP Indonesia Competition will be announced on March 1, with their entries exhibited at the DEEP Indonesia show from March 8 to 11. Winning images will also be published by our international media partners, reaching an audience of millions.
