  2. Divers ascend to a depth no deeper than 2m/~6.5ft.
  3. The dive continues as a static, with the divers with the longest dive time crowned the winner.

The competition will feature both professionals and nonprofessionals. The target depth for professionals is 44m/~144ft and 20m/~65ft.

The male and female professional competition winners will each receive a prize of €1,500/~US$1,788/~£1,288.

The competition guest of honor will be Herbert Nitsch, who will give a lecture on August 6th, 2021, titled “Back from the Abyss,” followed by a Q&A session.
