The search is on for the Underwater Photographer of the Year 2019, and photographers are being urged to get their entries in before the closing date on 4 January.
Based in Britain, the Underwater Photographer of the Year contest is widely regarded as the world’s best underwater photography competition, attracting thousands of entries, with the winners showcased around the world in mainstream media.
Visitors attending the upcoming GO Diving show in February will get to see the winners first, as it will be home to an exhibition of large format prints from the competition and an award ceremony on stage on the Sunday. If you take underwater pictures, you could see your name in lights.
The contest has categories open to all photographers, as well as ones focused on British waters and those open only to photographers shooting with compact cameras. Entries close tomorrow (4 January) at midnight (GMT).
