DAN Europe Unveils New 2022 Membership Card


Divers Alert Network Europe this week unveiled their 2022 membership card that features a wining photo by Cédric Péneau.

Péneau’sMother and Son: Humpback Whales, Reunion Island” photo won the DAN Europe Card prize this past weekend at the Abissi Underwater Photo Contest in Venice, Italy.

The winning photo and photographer’s name will appear on over 100.000 e-Cards of DAN Europe members all over Europe, the Middle East, and the Maldives throughout 2022.

According to Péneau:

“I am deeply honoured to have one of my photographs selected to represent such a reference as DAN Europe, which is by far the world’s most recognised dive safety agency. I have become a Member when I started travelling abroad, it kept me reassured and serene as I know DAN can be trusted even in remote places.”

Umberto Giorgini, Director of Operations at DAN Europe, said:

“The tender yet powerful image of two cetaceans, a mother and her calf diving together in the bluest waters is so meaningful, and well represents our values towards safer diving activities in more protected, healthier Oceans. We are delighted that this photo will be displayed to all our Members on the newly designed DAN Europe App, instead of the classic but outdated PVC card.”
