“Best of Show” and Animal Behavior (Gold) – Mathieu Foulquié
DivePhotoGuide and Wetpixel are proud to announce the winners of the 2016 DEEP Indonesia International Underwater Photo Competition. In conjunction with the Our World Underwater International Photo and Video Competition, the contest makes up what is known as the “superbowl” of underwater imaging competitions, offering more than $100,000 in prizes.
This year’s DEEP Indonesia contest attracted thousands of entries from all over the world, with photographers vying for awesome travel prizes to Indonesia, Fiji and Papua New Guinea, as well as wicked equipment prizes.
Special congratulations to Mathieu Foulquié, who earned the “Best of Show” award with a wonderful image of mating toads, which was shot in France. This year’s judging panel included Aaron Wong, Daniel Botelho, Abi Smigel Mullens and Joseph Tepper.
The full set of winning images can be viewed on the Underwater Competition website, and will be published by supporting media partners worldwide. As with all Underwater Competition contests, 15% of proceeds will be donated directly to marine conservation efforts.
