Yes, we know we’ve only just announced the latest World Oceans Day Photo Competition, but we wanted to let you know that there’s another great contest for a good cause on the horizon: the Second Think Pink Photo Competition, organized by Dive into the Pink, and hosted by DPG.
No prizes for guessing that the competition is all about PINK. As long as your subject is (at least half) underwater, anything goes, and images can be taken anywhere, anytime. This year, there will be two categories—Macro and Wide Angle—and even more prizes. Plus, the organizers have enlisted the help of some big names in underwater photography to help with the tricky business of judging: Mike Bartick, Tanya Burnett, and Alex Mustard.
The most important part? Entry is via donation to Dive into the Pink, and proceeds are used to support the fight against cancer.
The competition launches on May 31st, so start scouring your photo library for your pinkest pics now—or better yet, if you’re going diving in the next few weeks, make sure you get lots of pink in the frame!
About Dive into the Pink
Dive into the Pink, Inc. was started in 2015 by Allison Vitsky, a breast cancer survivor, veteran scuba diver, and underwater photographer, who wanted to raise money to fight cancer in an unconventional way—by going scuba diving with friends.
Its charters let divers get together for a fun, pink-accented day on the ocean knowing that 100% of the proceeds will go towards survivor support and breast cancer research.
Its funds are split between the Young Survival Coalition (YSC) and the Guise Laboratory at Indiana University. The YSC is an international organization dedicated to the critical issues of young women with breast cancer—specifically, Dive into the Pink supports and promotes the YSC's incredible patient support network. The Guise Laboratory is part of the Department of Endocrinology at Indiana University; funds are earmarked for a project examining whether characteristics of the bone marrow microenvironment can alter or promote the spread of breast and other cancers to the bones.
Dive into the Pink is a salary-free, low-administrative cost 501c3 organization.
