Big prizes up for grabs in inaugural Underwater Awards Australasia



The Underwater Awards Australasia 2024 is a new underwater imaging competition focused on the Australasian region – an industry-first three-way collaboration between the long-established Underwater Australasia, leading underwater photography and videography resource DivePhotoGuide, and underwater imaging equipment and dive gear distributor UW Images.

The competition will culminate in an exhibition at the GO Diving Show ANZ in September 2024 — the inaugural Australian edition of the hugely successful GO Diving Show in the UK.

The prestigious judging panel comprises Tobias Friedrich, Jayne Jenkins, Brett Lobwein, Ross Long, Matty Smith and William Tan (Matty and Brett will also be on the Photo Stage at the GO Diving Show ANZ). The prizes, worth more than AUS$50,000 in total, include dive trips with the world’s top resorts and liveaboards, as well as the latest underwater photo and video gear.

Entrants compete for prizes in eight categories, including the unique ‘Reels Showcase' video category. The top image or video among the category winners receives the distinction of ‘Best of Show'. The competition calls for passionate underwater shooters from around the world to submit their most captivating and compelling images and videos from the Australasian region. Shooters are invited to immerse themselves in the challenge of capturing the essence of this extraordinary realm, where every frame tells a story of the delicate balance and breathtaking beauty that characterises our oceans.

The competition opens on 15 June and closes on 1 August. Winners will be revealed on and published by supporting media partners worldwide shortly thereafter. The entry fees are US$10 per image or video entered.
