The Our World Underwater international underwater photography and video competition has become known as the “Superbowl” of underwater imaging events. The competition celebrates and highlights both art of underwater photography as well as the beauty of the ocean.
This year the panel of judges went through thousands of images and videos taken by novice to professional photographers and videographers from around the world.
$55,000 in prizes were awarded to the winners. Congratulations to Yatwai So, who won Best of Show for his 1st place image from the Macro Unrestricted category.
Winners were announced live on stage during the Our World Underwater film festival in Chicago (February 24–26, 2017), and will be published by supporting media partners worldwide. You can enjoy the winning images and video below.
