The Ocean in Focus Conservation Photography ContestSeaWeb and Project AWARE Foundation have launched a new photography contest giving scuba divers and other ocean enthusiasts the chance to win $2,000 worth of prizes.

The Ocean in Focus Conservation Photography Contest launches on World Ocean Day on the 8th June and challenges photographers to enter their most engaging environmental photographs that “illustrate the pressing marine issues and the solutions that aim to reverse the rapid decline of our ocean's health.”

Examples of such issues are: unsustainable fishing practices, pollution and debris, ocean dumping, oil spills, global warming and climate change as well as the effects of sea level rise and endangered and threatened ecosystems.

The competition offers first and second prizes in two categories - Species of Concern/Ecosystem Decline and Humans and the Ocean: Impacts and Solutions. Photographers will also be battling it out for the grand prize package consisting of a seven-night stay at the Plaza Resort in Bonaire, a $250 gift certificate to Backscatter Underwater Video and Photo, 16 tons of carbon offsets from NativeEnergy and more.

“As AWARE divers, we have a personal relationship with underwater environments and often see damage to underwater ecosystems,” says Jenny Miller Garmendia, Director of Project Aware. “But we are also often part of the solution by participating in ongoing conservation projects around the world. This photo contest gives divers and water enthusiasts opportunities to tell these conservation stories through powerful imagery.”

“This contest is about advancing ocean conservation through imagery,” says SeaWeb President Dawn M. Martin. “Anyone who holds a camera in their hand has the power to change the hearts and minds of people around them by capturing the challenges facing our ocean.”

Entries will be accepted from the launch day until the closing date on September 30th. For full details of how to enter please visit the website.
