The 2011 Underwater Festival is a photo and video shootout competition which will be held from Friday 2 to Sunday 11 September 2011 simultaneously in the whole of Australasia. Competition entries can be shot in any country in the geographic region of Australasia, the only stipulation being that they must have been taken during the above time period. In addition to entries being judged for prizes, there is also a prize draw for all participants.
Registration for the shootout is open now.
The 5th Underwater Festival - The Australasian Challenge - 6 weeks to go!
The 2011 Underwater Festival is a Photo and Video Shootout competition held from Friday the 2nd to Sunday the 11th of September 2011 simultaneous in the whole of Australasia. Like an “Underwater Earth Hour” the aim is to capture a snapshot of the region to show the world what we’ve got to lose.
There are over $150,000 in prizes (dive trips, dive and camera gear etc) and we would love you to become part of it and help us by telling all your underwater photo/video friends about it.
There is no need to spend big bucks on dive trips to remote locations, you can also go diving in your ‘own backyard’ - every dive site in the 25 countries we call Australasia is a shootout location, as long as photos and videos are taken between 2nd and the 11th of September 2011 they are eligible for entry.
$25,000 in prizes will be drawn amongst all entrants as Underwater snapshot participation prizes, independent of their entry quality to encourage broad participation without the fear of “not being good enough” to win.
I invite you to have a look at the Underwater Festival website and we hope to see your registration soon.
A host of web banner and videos to integrate into your personal website, post on facebook etc. are available here
–> Where will you dive? - Register now.
