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.

 The Writer  part of my Underwater Surrealism body of work. This image is playing off the inking abilities of the squid. Squid release their ink in stressful situations  just like many people do the same with ink while writing in dairies.
