The Underwater Awards Australasia 2024 is now accepting entries. The new underwater imaging competition focused on the Australasian region is an industry-first three-way collaboration between DPG, Underwater Australasia, and UW Images.

Entrants compete for prizes in 8 categories, including our unique “Reels Showcase” video category, with the top image or video among the category winners receiving the distinction of “Best of Show.” The prizes, worth more than A$50,000 in total, include dive trips with the world’s top resorts and liveaboards as well as the latest underwater photo and video gear. The prestigious panel of judges comprises Tobias Friedrich, Jayne Jenkins, Brett Lobwein, Ross Long, Matty Smith and William Tan.
