Wetpixel Picture of the Year 2009

Recommended Posts

The new year is upon us, which means that it's time to vote for the Wetpixel Picture of the Year 2009!

 

This gallery consists of every winning Picture of the Week from 2009. Over 30 days of voting, Wetpixel members -- and the public -- will vote on what you think was the best photo from last year. The author of the winning photo will score a one-week liveaboard dive trip aboard the M/V Solmar V!

 

The Solmar V is a fantastic liveaboard dive vessel that runs trips to Socorro, the Sea of Cortez, and to Guadalupe for great white sharks. Wetpixel thanks them for donating such an incredible prize for our contest!

 

Head on over to the gallery and get your vote in -- voting ends at the end of February 11, 2010!

For his winning image, Benton scores a one-week trip aboard the M/V Solmar V, a liveaboard dive vessel that runs dive trips to Socorro, the Sea of Cortez, and to Guadalupe for great white sharks. Jose Luis of Solmar V writes:

 

“Congratulations from the Solmar V on a fantastic image! We are especially partial to giant manta shots. We truly look forward to introducing you to the gianta mantas of socorro where you will have great photo ops - up close and personal - with these amazing creatures.”

Thank you all who voted. With so many spectacular photos competing in this group, any one of them could have (perhaps should have) won. So I am thrilled to have won, but at the same time humbled by the competition. Congratulations to all the POTW winners!
