The winners of the 4th Annual Wetpixel & DivePhotoGuide International Underwater Photo & Video Competition were announced during the Saturday night film festival at Our World Underwater in Chicago. Jason Heller from DivePhotoGuide presented the winning images and videos to an enthusiastic crowd, and they are on display all weekend at the show.
Congratulations to Justin Gilligan of Australia for his Best of Show split-shot photograph of a Portuguese Man O’ War. Category winners in this year’s competition represented over twenty countries!
Winning images and videos are being posted at the competition’s official website, UnderwaterCompetition.com. A special thanks to the generous sponsors, without which these competitions would not be possible. Good luck next year!
