World Underwater Image Festival Now Taking Submissions


Attention, underwater shutterbugs! The World Underwater Image Festival is now taking submissions for its annual contest in Marseilles, France later on this year.

The firm HP Communication will help organize the Festival. Hélène de Tayrac-Senik is in charge of HP Communication. Tayrac-Senik has also helped run the Paris International Dive Show for the past 18 years in Porte de Versailles.

“This reorganization aims at improving the Festival with the help of the Town Hall of Marseille and thanks to the attractive features of Parc Chanot,” according to the festival’s website.

The festival will take place from October 29 through November 1. Avid photographers — still and video — have until September 30 to submit their entries. For competition rules, click here.
