On June 8th, the United Nations celebrated World Oceans Day 2016 and recognized the winners of the Annual World Oceans Day Oceanic Photo Competition at an event at the UN Headquarters.
DPG was once again a proud partner of the open and free photo competition, which seeks to inspire the creation and dissemination of positive imagery. If you haven’t seen the beautiful winners, you can see them here.
The World Ocean Day event was a true celebration of the ocean, and in addition to announcing the winners of the photo competition, there were a number of musical performances and speeches. The evening was highlighted by a special performance by Jack Johnson.
A big thank you to Blancpain, who once again supported the event and also provided us with the photos below.
