UW Photo-Contest with hundreds of photographers from all of the world
DivePhotoGuide and Wetpixel are proud to announce the winners of the 2020 DEEP Indonesia international underwater photography competition. The competition is part of a unique series of underwater imaging events and has become one of the biggest and most prestigious in the world. Everyone from novice to professionals compete annually in what has become the “Super Bowl” of international underwater imagery events, which combined with the DPG/Wetpixel Masters Underwater Imaging Competition, awarded over $100,000 of world-class prizes.
The contest saw hundreds of photographers from all of the world compete to win their share of the fantastic prizes. The signature component of Indonesia’s prestigious diving, adventure travel and extreme sports expo, the DEEP Indonesia competition invites submissions to five image categories, with entries considered by a judging panel comprising award-winning photographers Mike Bartick, Renee Capozzola, Ellen Cuylaerts, Tobias Friedrich, Kate Jonker, and Andrew Marriott.
The annual DEEP Indonesia International Underwater Photo Competition has grown to be one of the most prestigious and competitive of its kind. As part of the Underwater Competition Series, the contest is organized by DivePhotoGuide and Wetpixel. This year’s competition received thousands of entries vying for the chance to win some of the travel and equipment prizes.
In a joint statement, DPG Editor-in-Chief Joseph Tepper and Wetpixel Publisher Adam Hanlon said: “Once again, the DEEP Indonesia competition attracted some stunning images, and we’re excited to see the Best of Show go to a compact shooter! Many congratulations to all of this year’s winners from DPG and Wetpixel!”
Congratulations to Enrico Somogyi, who took home the Best of Show award for a creative capture of a golden jellyfish in Palau. This image, and all the other winning photos, can be viewed right here on UnderwaterCompetition.com, as well as at the DEEP Indonesia Expo in Jakarta, Indonesia.
