The prizes, worth more than $75,000 in total, include dive trips with the world’s top resorts and liveaboards, as well as the latest underwater photo and video gear.

Organizers Joe Tepper and Ian Bongso-Seldrup issued the following joint statement:

“With the Masters Underwater Imaging Competition being among the most prestigious contests in the underwater imaging world, we’re expecting to see another flood of incredible pictures. Our judging panels always have their work cut out for them, and we’re sure they’ll have a challenging time choosing the winners this time around. We’re excited to see what jaw-dropping images and videos you’ve captured!”

As well as the coveted prizes, there is also huge status and kudos in being placed among the finalists. The selected winners are the world’s best underwater shooters, judged by an all-star panel. Their images and videos will expose millions of dive, travel and photography magazines and websites to their work worldwide.

The organizers are once again pleased to announce that 15 percent of entry proceeds will be donated to marine conservation efforts.
