Last Call for Environmental Photo Contest Submissions

One week remaining for scuba divers and ocean enthusiasts to compete and win big.

Rancho Santa Margarita, CA, 23 September – Just days remain in The Ocean in Focus Conservation Photography Contest hosted by Project AWARE Foundation and SeaWeb. The contest takes aim at the rapid decline of our ocean’s health and challenges photographers to point their cameras in a new direction - engaging ocean conservation-themed imagery.

There’s still time for photographers of varied experience levels to compete by entering their most compelling marine conservation themed images from around the world. The grand prize winner will receive a seven-night stay at Plaza Resort Bonaire; a $250 gift certificate to Backscatter Underwater Video and Photo; 16 tons of carbon offsets from NativeEnergy and more—a total Grand Prize package worth more than $2,000.

Prizes will also be awarded for first and second place in two contest categories: Species of Concern/Ecosystem Decline and Humans and the Ocean: Impacts and Solutions.
