Our World Underwater Kicks Off!

Editor's Note: This is the first in a series of DPG's coverage of OWU. You can also read the coverage from day two and day three

Another fantastic year of Our World Underwater is underway in Chicago! The 41st annual gathering in the Chicagoland area kicked off tonight with a thorough selection of exhibits, the first night of the film festival, and of course, the DPG booth/home base for this years award-winning images!

And although there is so much to see and do as photographers in the nation's oldest consumer dive show, the DPG booth right near the expo's entrance was certainly a highlight of the first day. Here are a few snapshots of the DPG booth decorated with the 27 deserving winners of this years Underwater Photo Competition. 

The 'snazzy' DPG booth- come visit!

Visitors check out this years amazing winning photographs with Maria!

DPG would like to extend a great "thank you" to Maria Munn, who made sure there was always someone at the booth while we were off galavanting. Be sure to stay tuned for continued coverage of this year's Our World Underwater exposition, including a breakdown of the latest gear on display and the need to know info for every underwater photographer!
