Ocean Art 2021 Underwater Photo Competition


This year, we are excited to announce a new category - the Black & White category! This category will feature photographs in black, white, and shades of grey. These photos emphasize the ability of the photographer to accentuate light and shadows to tell a story. We have also decided to continue our very unique and impactful Blackwater and Underwater Conservation categories.

We can't wait to see the incredible photography our amazing community of underwater photographers brings forth!




The contest features prizes exceeding $30,000 in value from some of the world's top liveaboard, resort, and photo gear sponsors.


Open to all
