Final Chance to Enter The 34th World Festival of Underwater Pictures - Antibes
By Jason Heller, September 13, 2007 @ 02:00 AM (EST)


The 34th World Festival of Underwater Pictures will be held in Antibes – France, at the marine mammal park Marineland from October 24th to 28 th 2007.

Attending the event is not a requirement for participation. This is the 34th year that the south of France has welcomed the world's underwater photographers,filmmakers and artists. Like last year, DivePhotoGuide will be covering daily updates from the French Riviera.

Each year the festival has an underlying theme. Last year was Papua New Guinea. 2007 represents Aqua Lung’s 60th birthday. The 34th edition of the Festival will widely take part in the celebration of this jubilee. Claire Keim, a French actress and singer with a brilliant career, has been diving since her childhood. She will be the honorary guest for the 34th edition of the Festival.

In the new venue provided by the marine theme park Marineland, the Festival will spread over another dimension. All festival-goers and participants can attend the shows offered by Marineland.

The opening-ceremony will be held round the orcas’ basin, with more than 4.000 seats. This evening will include an Orcas show and the screening of a film chosen among the films in competition. A cocktail will close the evening.

During the Festival, the competitors’ films, slides and slides-show will be screened into two rooms (1.000 and 300 seats).

Three restaurants will receive the festival participants inside the Marineland Park.

Last but not least, we will have a dedicated space at our disposal for " festive evenings" (Antibes is known for parties! Underwater photographers sure can can drink!)

The award ceremony will be held around the Orcas’ basin. During the ceremony, all the Festival participants will be able to attend the showing of the awarded films in the two viewing rooms.

All signs point to success. This 34th festival will remain in all the memories, even more festive than ever.

Deadline for entries into the competition is September 15th, 2007
