Over $25,000 in prizes!
It is with much excitement and honor that we present to you the winners of the first annual Wetpixeland DivePhotoGuide International Underwater Photography Competition. The two popular underwater imaging websites have teamed up to celebrate the beauty and delicacy of the marine environment by developing the first instance of a new, annual, international underwater photography competition. For our inaugural event, only digital entries were accepted, including both images taken from digital cameras or scanned from film. Over $25,000 in prizes were awarded and we congratulate the winners from around the globe!
Photographers competed in six categories to win more than $25,000 in prizes, including premium dive travel, underwater photography equipment, and more, and 15% of entry proceeds will be donated to marine conservation efforts.
Winners were announced on stage at the 2006 Our World-Underwater festival in Chicago, Illinois (February 24-26, 2006).
