DPG Announces Winners of April Monthly Contest
By Joseph Tepper, May 17, 2012 @ 03:19 AM (EST)

The DPG editorial staff is proud to announce the winners of our April monthly photo contest!

The theme for April was “Marine Mammals” and the winner of a brand-new i-Tourch 600 from i-Divesite ($200 value) is DPG-er Phil Davison.

Phil thrilled the judges with his great capture of a sea lion having a tug of war with an octopus. The judges were impressed with the uniqueness of the behavior and great perspective of the situation.

First Place- Phil Davison

Second place went to DPG contest veteran Brandi Mueller for her great shot of several humpback whales in the Dominican Republic. Ron Watkins took home the third place for his stunning black and white shot of a snorkeler with a pod of dolphins.

A special thank you to DPG monthly contest sponsor i-Divesite, who generously donated one of their i-Tourch 600 focus lights to this month’s winner.

As always, a tip of the cap to the DPG contest judging staff: Pro photogs Jeff De Guzman, Mark Fuller, Steve De Neef and Keri Wilk, along with DPG editors Joseph Tepper and Matt Weiss. 

Congrats to the winners and all of those who entered, making this month’s judging as difficult as ever! Make sure to enter your best “Bokeh” shots in this month’s contest.
