DPG and Wetpixel are thrilled to announce the launch of the DPG/Wetpixel Masters Underwater Imaging Competition 2022. This long-established and widely respected contest celebrates the splendor of the oceans and the challenging art of underwater photography and video. In contrast to many competitions, it is laser-focused on simply wanting to award imaging excellence, with a small number of categories and, thanks to our generous sponsors, a great depth of amazing prizes. The organizers call on underwater shooters of all levels, from novice to professional, to compete in what has become the de facto “World Championship” of international underwater imagery events.
Categories for 2022 are: Wide Angle, Macro, Traditional (a single category inviting all entries that have a minimal application of post-processing), Black and White, Over-Under, and Short Film.
The prizes, worth more than $75,000 in total, include dive trips with the world’s top resorts and liveaboards, as well as the latest underwater photo and video gear. Entrants compete for prizes in 6 categories, with the top image among the category winners receiving a grand prize of $1000 in cash.
