 In its fourth annual Underwater Photography Contest, the Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science attracted a diverse array of national and international photographic talent representing 23 countries and more than 480 images to compete in one of three categories: “wide angle,” “macro,” and “fish or marine animal portrait.” Recognition was also given to the best among University of Miami student entries. Winning images were chosen through anonymous judging by a panel of experts in photography, fine arts, and sciences, including Taimy Alvarez, Lauren R. Gould, Ken Marks, Myron Wang and Nicole Wang. The competition was open to all amateur photographers who earn no more than 20 percent of their income from their photography. Awards included a weeklong trip with Blackbeard’s Cruises and cash prizes.
