OFFICIAL CALL FOR ENTRIES

2nd Annual DEEP Indonesia International Underwater Photo Competition
Hosted by Wetpixel & DivePhotoGuide

On the heels of announcing the prestigious 3rd-annual, US-based international photo and video competition, Wetpixel & DivePhotoGuide have once again organized a joint collaboration with DEEP Indonesia, Indonesia’s first-ever Diving, Adventure Travel and Water sports expo.

2007 marked the first time two international underwater photography competitions associated with dive expos on opposite sides of the world cooperated to establish a complementary series of categories and prizing opportunities. In 2007 winners alone spanned across 18 countries.

Photographers will compete in 7 themed categories to win over $30,000 in prizes, including photo equipment, dive gear, and premium dive travel packages to some of the top photo destinations in Indonesia and beyond. Indonesia trips include some of the top photo destinations in Indonesia – Komodo, Raja Empat, Lembeh Bali, Manado, Fak Fak, and Ambon. Additional dive packages include trips to the pristine reefs of Papua New Guinea and shark diving in the Bahamas. The contest is open to all skill levels and includes a category for images that focus on conservation and the marine environment, one for entries taken by compact digital cameras, and one specifically for Indonesian entrants.
