BP Kongsberg Underwater Image Competition
Now for something completely different - at least for most Wetpixel readers: a deepwater photography contest. “As part of the 11th International Deep-Sea Biology Symposium, to be held at the National Oceanography Centre, Southampton on 9 – 14th July 2006, a flagship underwater image and video competition is being launched. The competition, sponsored by BP and Kongsberg Maritime, will seek entries in 5 categories with the aim of showcasing the best biological and technical images and video clips from the deep sea. Entries from industry, scientists, support staff and professional photographers are all welcomed.”
