U of M RSMAS Announces Winners of Annual Contest
By Joseph Tepper, April 19, 2012 @ 05:45 PM (EST)

The University of Miami Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science has announced the winners of its 2012 underwater photography contest.

Of the thirteen winners in five separate categories – macro, wide-angle, animal portrait, student and ‘fan favorite’ - it was the incredible macro shot of a vibrant orange headshield sea slug that took home the “Best in Show” award. The shot by Ximena Olds depicted the slug against a brilliantly green background of seagrass.  

“The quality of photos keeps getting better each year,” said Myron Wang, who has been judging the contest since its inception. “Judging becomes more difficult when you have so many wonderful pictures to choose from. For me, there were excellent entries in every category but this year’s standout was the great picture of the juvenile sperm whale taken by Douglas Kahle in Dominica – it is spectacular!”

The complete list of winners and winning photographs can be found at the UM website.
