Finalists have been announced for the 2009 Raja Ampat Entrance Tag Design Contest, hosted at Wetpixel.com. Vote for your favorite image or design -- the winning image will appear on Raja Ampat's 2009 park tag!

Last year's winning image, a pygmy seahorse with its tail wrapped around a gorgonian branch, was shot by Alex Mustard, who won a week-long dive trip to Raja Ampat in addition to having his image attached to every diver who visited the park in 2008. The winner of the 2009 tag contest will win a week at Raja Ampat's original eco-resort at Kri.

Public voting ends at 11:59 PM, September 25, 2008 (Pacific time). Be sure to log in to Wetpixel before you vote for your favorite image. We'll be awarding a free 1-year subscription of Wetpixel Quarterly to a random voter, but you must be logged in to play!
