Voting Underway For 2015 In-Water Photography Contest


For those shutterbugs who like taking underwater pictures with the least amount of dive gear, the category winners of a new contest were recently announced.

Winners of 20 categories can now be voted on to determine the 2015 In Water Photographer of the Year.

As organizer Martin Toole says:

“It’s all about entering the water with as minimal amount of gear as possible and taking photographs of what you love. The competition involves freediving, snorkelling, spearfishing, surfing photography and more.”
