Drinks (1st one on us) and finger food will be available and happy hour is from 5.30-8.00pm.   So come join fellow image chasers, manufacturers and friends on Friday April 11th from 7.30pm till "late"!

 

Venue: ME@OUE
The Penthouse Level
50 Collyer Quay, OUE Bayfront

 

Time: Friday, April 11th 2014 from 730pm till "late"

Indonesia protects Mantas - Great news

11 March 2014 - 07:33 AM

Normally it's all glum news but this silver lining came up last month.  Indonesia recognized the revenue potential of manta tourism and has come up with legislation to protect mantas in Indonesia waters.  It is still unclear how implementation and enforcement is going to be handled in the 10000+ islands with their various provinces, but it is going in the right direction!

Have you sold an image because of Wetpixel forums?

09 March 2014 - 08:01 AM

After being approached again via my posts on Wetpixel, I'm curious to find out how many members have actually been approached by publishers who saw your work on Wetpixel, either in the forums or elsewhere?

Don't worry, this isn't a demand for royalties! :) It is just interesting to know if there is extra benefit for posting in the forums, since it shows up in search engines because of the hits.

7 divers went missing 4 days ago, diving off Lembongan.  5 were found at Manta Point and 1 found dead today. 1 still missing.  Hopefully they'll find the last diver alive!
