International underwater photography & video competitions of the decade

Our partners over at DivePhotoGuide and Wetpixel host a unique series of competitions – the Our World Underwater competition and DEEP Indonesia competition.

The deadline for the first major international underwater photo and video competitions of the new decade is January 15th. Your entries must be submitted by the deadline date in order to compete for over $80,000 in valuable prizes, and the recognition as being one of the best in the world. There are categories for photographers of all levels, from novice to professionals.

You can compete in 14 still image categories and 2 video categories across the competition series.

Winners for each respective competition will be announced live on stage at either the Our World Underwater film festival in Chicago (February 19 – 21, 2010), or at DEEP Indonesia in Jakarta (March 27 – 29, 2010), and will be published by supporting media partners worldwide. Winning videos will be broadcast via The Underwater Channel, and podcast as episodes of the iTunes-featured DiveFilm Podcast Video and DiveFilm High Definition Podcast Video

As with all events, 15% of entry proceeds will be donated to marine conservation efforts.
