Winners of Scuba Diving Magazine Photo Contest

There is no shortage of inspiring underwater images on the internet. Your daily dose of muse comes from the winners of the 2018 Scuba Diving Magazine Underwater Photo Competition. More than 2,100 entries competed for top prize, which was earned by former DPG Photographer of the Week Rodney Bursiel

Rodney’s surreal picture of a humpback whale in Tonga inverts not only the image’s composition, but also your perception of that amazing animal. As well as the grand prize, awards were doled out in various individual categories: “Compact,” “Macro,” Wide-Angle,” and “Conceptual.”

Congrats to all of the DPG members who participated and to the lucky winners. Check out all of the winning images, here. Starved for more awesome shots? Check out the recently announced winners of the 2018 Think Pink Photo Competition, which raised more than $3,000 for breast cancer research.
