“Oceans of Life” Photographic Competition

The Competition seeks to promote the conservation of marine biodiversity and ecosystems, and responsible use of marine resources, through the inspirational beauty of photography and the associated activities of the SOS Festival.

Finalists will be notified in September 2012.
The Youth Category is open to photographers aged 21 years or younger. Winning images are a mix of novelty, creativity, beauty, drama, use of light and technical perfection that reveal marine life in ways the human eye cannot normally perceive, or that tell a story without requiring further explanation. You can enter up to five photographs.
Image requirements: at least 2000 pixels on longest side (equivalent to 4 megapixels), but no bigger than 6 000 on longest side (and no larger than 23 megapixels); 300 dpi or higher, but no less than 150 dpi at 60 cm along the longest dimension.
