The signature component of Indonesia’s prestigious diving, adventure travel and extreme sports expo, the DEEP Indonesia competition invites submissions to five image categories, with entries considered by a judging panel comprising award-winning photographers Mike Bartick, Renee Capozzola, Ellen Cuylaerts, Tobias Friedrich, Kate Jonker, and Andrew Marriott.

This year, Enrico Somogyi clinched the ‘Best of Show’ prize for his first place in the Compact Cameras category, an amazing image of a golden jellyfish shot in Palau. Judge Ellen Cuylaerts summed it up best: “A beautiful, surreal approach to a common subject. Looks like an outer space scene, with marine life taking a time out from planet Earth, but keeping a close connection. It caught my eye and made me dream of exploration!”
