Good question. As a judge I certainly didn't get anything!

These large competitions do generate a large amount of administration - and printing costs for the winning shots. Also this competition states that "15% of entry proceeds will be donated to marine conservation efforts" - which I think is unusual and a positive action.

Once again congrats to all the winners. I really enjoyed finding out who was behind the various images, yesterday. Up to that point we have no idea.

I know this kind of contest it’s not easy to organise: congrats to all the people involved in it… and thanks to Wetpixel and DivePhotoGuide!

Many thanks as well to the judges… euhhh... I think essentially since they choose 2 of my pictures :)

I have met Claude, but he didn't offer!

Rumour has it, that sleeping with the judges can help in some competitions. But unfortunately not this one.

Congrats to All, fantastic pictures!

My biggest smile went to Noam's seahorses, bearing in mind that last year he also won macro category with the same seahorse (ok not the same individual one) :wacko: really great picture, wow. And the others as well.

Question to the judges here: is there a list anywhere showing where a certain contender finished? I know n general it's totally no matter if my pictures finished like 5th of 500th, I'm just keen on knowing how far they've got :lol:

Once again: bravo finalists, all were great!
