Each spring, the University of Miami’s Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science hosts an underwater photography contest open to amateur photographers.
Photographs are divided in three separate categories: Fish or Marine Animal Portrait, Macro, Wide Angle, and the School will also recognize the best UM Student Submission and the Best Overall submission.
The top prize is a trip on Blackbeard’s Cruises, departing from Freeport, Bahamas. (Trip prizes do not include gratuities, port taxes, Bahamas Underwater National Park Fees, gear rental, etc., and are subject to availability.)
There will also be monetary awards for those finishing in 1st, 2nd and 3rd place in each of the categories.
The winners will be announced this year at the Rosenstiel School’s popular Sea Secrets Lecture on April 18. During this free lecture, Stan Waterman, one of the true pioneers in the shark diving community, will share some mind-blowing tales as well as clips from his extraordinary marine life videos that have garnered five Emmy¨ Awards.
