Blue O Two has announced the winners of its first-ever Diving Life photography competition.
The Diving Life competition showcases the best amateur scuba-diving photography from around the world.
The overall winner received a liveaboard trip to Egypt, the title of ‘Diving Life Photographer of the Year 2020’ along with an assortment of Blue O Two goodies. All category winners received a copy of their photograph printed on canvas, a copy of the calendar and a selection of branded goodies. And finally the runners up had their image printed in the calendar, and received a copy to keep for themselves.
A spokesperson for Blue O Two said: “We hope you are ready to be blown away – because we truly have been! We would like to thank everyone who entered. Especially during these strange times, seeing every image has really given us a boost and reminded us just how beautiful the world is.
“We would also like to extend a special thanks to Dr Alex Mustard MBE, who judged the competition for us. Without further ado, we’ll let him announce the overall winner…”
Alex Mustard said: “Special congratulations to the overall winner, Masayuki Agawa, from the USA, whose white-knuckle image Hammer River will immediately transport anyone who has dived with hammerheads in the East Pacific back to those dives.”
