THIS YEAR'S CATEGORIES

This year we are excited to announce a new category - the Mobile Phone Category! In order to lower the barrier to entry into our competition, we have decided to add a 14th category that showcases the ability of anyone, anywhere to take underwater photos. Recent advancements in smartphone technology and affordable smartphone housings have enabled a greater percentage of the general public to capture incredible underwater art. 

We can't wait to see the incredible photography our amazing community of underwater photographers brings forth!
