The 13th annual Underwater Photography Contest hosted by the University of Miami’s Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science (RSMAS) is now accepting entries.
The contest, which has been hosted by RSMAS every spring since 2005, is aimed at amateur photographers who earn “no more than 20% of their income from photography.”
Photographs are judged in five categories:
- Fish or Marine Animal Portrait
- Wide Angle
- Best Overall
Photos will be judged anonymously by a panel of professional photographers and marine scientists. Winners will be announced at one of the Sea Secrets lectures and displayed in a traveling exhibit throughout South Florida. First, second, and third place winners will receive monetary awards, and the top prize is a trip on Blackbeard’s Cruises! Check out previous winners here.
Entries will be accepted until 12:00 PM, U.S. Eastern Time on Monday, April 3, 2017. Learn more about the rules and the prizes here.
