    Friedrich's photograph triumphed over 5000 other underwater images entered into the UK-based contest by photographers from all over the world.
    Underwater Photographer of the Year is an annual competition that has been revived in recent years. British photographer Phil Smith was the first UPY, named in 1965.
    Today's competition has 11 categories, testing photographers with themes such as Macro, Wide Angle, Behaviour and Wreck photography, as well as three categories for photos taken specifically in British waters.
    The judges, experienced underwater photographers Peter Rowlands, Martin Edge and Alex Mustard, named a top three along with a number of highly commended photographers in each category, and also named the British, Up & Coming and Most Promising British UPYs.
    The pictures here are the winning shots (and one Highly Commended) in each category.
