2014 DEEP Indonesia International Underwater Photo Competition Winners Announced

DEEP Indonesia 2014 Best of Show

DPG and Wetpixel are proud to announce the winners of the 2014 DEEP Indonesia International Underwater Photography Competition. The competition is part of a unique series of underwater imaging events and has become one of the biggest and most prestigious in the world. Everyone from novice to professionals compete annually in what has become the “Superbowl” of international underwater imagery events, which combined with the Our World Underwater competition, awarded over $80,000 of world-class prizes.

This year the competition received thousands of entries from underwater photographers in over 15 countries. Congratulations to Bert Willaert, who won Best of Show for his 1st place image from the Compact Camera category. It is the first time in the history of the series that the best of show was awarded to an image in the Compact Category section. It's a great reminder that a great photo is all about the photographer, rather than the equipment.

The judges for the competition were professional photographers Alex Mustard, Berkley White, Keri Wilk and Lia Barrett.

Winning images will be published by supporting media partners worldwide. You can always enjoy all of the winning images on the contest page. As with all UnderwaterCompetition.com events, 15% of entry proceeds will be donated to marine conservation efforts. The judges and staff at DivePhotoGuide.com and Wetpixel.com congratulate all the participants—the level of imagery was outstanding. The winners should be proud for producing some of the best underwater images of the year!
