The 2012 Lundy Splash-In Underwater Photography Competition has been scheduled for;
Saturday 7th July 2012
The event will take place on Lundy Island, with registration opening from 8am till 11am at the Lundy Jetty. Photos will be judged that evening and the winners announced at the evening barn dance that will take place. The £20 entrance fee covers entrance to the competition, camping on the island and admission to the evening barn dance.
Lundy is a Mecca for divers, due to the unique variety of habitat and species found within such a small area. The clear waters surrounding Lundy, combined with the numerous shipwrecks and diverse marine life make it an ideal place for underwater photography.
We have a variety of fantastic prizes, totalling over £2 750 for the winning participants, kindly donated from Suunto, Olympus, AP Values, Mares, Scuba Travel, Sea & Sea, Cameras Underwater and Fourth Element.
The 2012 Lundy Splash-IN categories are:
- Mega to Macro: close-up portraits of marine species (both landscape and portrait orientation)
- Marine Ambience: showing Lundy’s spectacular underwater scenery at its best, and these can include other divers within the photograph
- Marine Abstract: Use your imagination!
The competition will all take place on Saturday 7th July, with the panel of independent judges deciding the winners and then announcing them at the barn dance that will take place that evening. We will be putting on a slide show of all entered photographs at the evening entertainment. A bar, food and musical entertainment will all be provided at the evening barn dance.
