The publishers of the Dyk magazines in Scandinavia have announced the publication of a magazine called “Dive the World”. The aim is for it to be image rich and story focused. Issue one was actually released in January, and issue two, due in April will feature a portfolio from Ethan Daniels and the second in a series of Nature Notes articles by Wetpixel’s Alex Mustard. Also featured in the publication are friends of Wetpixel Stephen Wong and Takako Uno as well as photographers Magnus Lundgren and Marcus Roth.
Dive the World is available quarterly by subscription.
The publisher behind the Scandinavian Dive Magazines, DYK in Denmark and Sweden are launching a new international dive magazine in 2012.
“In our opinion many dive magazines kill the underwater images by cramping too many and too small photographs together in too little space – and they suffocate the pages further with ugly advertising,” says editor in chief Jesper Kjøller.
DIVE THE WORLD – The International Dive Magazine is a global lifestyle magazine focusing on extraordinary dive experiences, dive travel, exotic location and exciting marine life encounters.
Above all, diving is a visual activity. And with DIVE THE WORLD we will, to a large extent, let the images speak for themselves – supported by quality writing, of course. Our goal is to take the reader along with us on a dive, even if they are relaxing in an armchair or airplane seat with the magazine. Properly telling a story requires space, and we will gladly let an article fill 16 to 20 pages if that is what it takes to bring a story to life. The result is a reading experience that no iPad or other form of digital media could deliver.
DIVE THE WORLD – The International Dive Magazine is a completely new idea in dive publishing. DIVE THE WORLD is purely a magazine for the traveling diver who enjoys easy tropical diving, marine life encounters and exotic adventures.
