DPG Announces Winners of July Monthly Contest
By Joseph Tepper, August 29, 2012 @ 09:00 AM (EST)

DPG is proud to announce the winners of our July Monthly Contest! The theme for the month was “Cephalopods” and the winner of a Subsee Adaptor curtesy of Reefnet (a $200 value) is Todd Bretl.

Todd wow-ed the judges with his great image of an octopus displaying its colors and tentacles at night.

Second place went to Wahrmut Sobainsky with his image of a pair of cuttlefish mating. Brian McHugh took home third place with his fantastic shot of squid on the hunt during a night dive.

First Place: Todd Bretl


Second Place: Wahrmut Sobainsky


Third Place: Brian McHugh

A special “thank you” to this month’s sponsor, ReefNet, who generously donated a Subsee adaptor ($200 value) to Todd.

Thanks also to the great 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 all the winners and those who entered; and make sure to enter your best Nudibranch shots in the August contest.
