The Underwater Photo Contest

Our underwater photography contest is the Worlds largest - online or off! We have more u/w photos in one place than anywhere else online!

The contest is organized into weekly and monthly 'hotshots'. At the end of the year we also have annual awards, which are the highlight of the underwater photographer's calendar.
