According to PR Web, this year they announced that it is giving away $75,000 in prizes.



The competition has 12 categories, including a Novice dSLR category and 3 compact camera categories, giving underwater photographers of all levels a chance to win a great prize. Unique categories include SuperMacro, Cold/ Temperate Water, Nudibranchs, and Divers/ Fashion. The more traditional categories include Wide-Angle, Macro, Marine Life Portraits, and Marine Life Behavior.


Winners will first be able to rank the prizes they would like to receive, making it more likely for winners to receive a prize they want. Then the winners from each category will be awarded a package at a resort or on a live-aboard.


The judges for this competition are world-renowned underwater photographers Martin Edge, Marty Snyderman, Tony Wu, and Todd Winner.


Photos must be submitted on or before the deadline on November 10, 2013.
