How do you know that the virus is on the retreat? When one of the highlights of the underwater imaging calendar is back! We’re talking, of course, about The Digital Shootout, which returns this summer to the balmy beaches of Bonaire.
Yes, after a three-year hiatus, participants from around the globe will once again be diving the spectacular waters of the Dutch Caribbean, brushing up on their underwater photography skills through daily seminars, getting their hands on the latest imaging equipment, and of course, competing for more brilliant trip and gear prizes. The best part? It’s two full weeks (rather than one), so participants have twice the learning time and twice the time to snap prize-winning images (and video). As usual, expert knowledge and cool camera gear is supplied by the Backscatter boys, with contributions by awesome folks such as Erin Quigley, Hergen Spalink and Cristian Dimitrius.
The 2022 Digital Shootout takes place between June 4th and 18th, and there are still a few spots up for grabs. The standard package includes 14 nights at the Divi Flamingo Beach Resort; daily breakfast, lunch and dinner; and three boat dives daily plus unlimited shore diving. All you have to do is get to and from Bonaire—and buy your own booze.
