In addition to our top award, we are also bringing back sought-after titles from the era of DIVER’s Brighton Festival. UPY will also name a British Underwater Photographer of the Year and a Most Promising British Underwater Photographer, 2015.
A glittering selection of more than 30 prizes from leading brands Nauticam, Scuba Travel, Apeks and Fourth Element will reward category-winners and more. Winning images will be exhibited at LIDS, and prizes will be presented on the PhotoZone stage.
The competition will be judged face to face (not online) by well-known and respected underwater photographers Alex Mustard, Martin Edge and Peter Rowlands. Judges will even be on hand at LIDS and happy to discuss entries and pass on personal tips for success in future editions.
You’ve got to be in it, to win it! Final date for entries is 5 January.
