The winning images will be recognized at the United Nations’ event marking World Oceans Day 2017 on June 8.

  • Above Water Seascapes
  • Human Interaction: Making a Difference
  • Youth (open category, any image of the ocean—below or above the surface—photographed by a person under 16 years of age as of 1 April 2017)
