The Eilat Red Sea shootout has teamed up with PADI and the BOOT show to launch the “Underwater Photography World Championship”. Held in conjunction with the Eilat Red Sea Shootout, individuals from a single country can band together to represent their nation, by entering a combined portfolio of 6 images. There is a prize purse of $3,000 for the winning team.
The judging will be carried out live during the Shootout, which runs from 7-13 September.
In addition, the event is calling for entries to the World Shootout. Any underwater image, shot between January and July this year can be entered online, and the winner can win $3,000 in cash. There is a bonus for early registrations (before 30 June 2014) which is a free additional set of entries in the competitors chosen category.
