Salish Sea Celebration
Get you cameras out and start working on entries for the Pacific Northwest underwater photo and video festival called the Salish Sea Celebration! It will be a photo and video competition featuring Northwest subjects. That’s correct: only photos and videos taken in the temperate waters of Alaska, British Columbia, Washington, and Oregon.
There are two main goals for the Salish Sea Celebration. The first is to provide a venue where Pacific Northwest underwater photographers and videographers can share their work. The second is to help educate and inspire the non-diving public with the beauty and diversity below our waterlines. The event is being modeled after similar contests in San Diego and Monterey.
As part of showcasing our amazing marine environment, we also plan on honoring our First Nations people for whom the Salish Sea was named. Their language and traditions will be incorporated into the Celebration.
More contest and event information will be available this Fall, but the culminating event, presentation of photos and videos, is set for Saturday, October 4, 2014, at Town Hall in downtown Seattle.
