underwater australasia Photocompetition 2007-08 Winners

The anual underwater.com.au photo competition is over, the judges have spoken and we are ready to announce the winners of the 4th annual underwater australasia photo competition. Like every year we have selected two winners each month until June 2008; one in the Open Category and one in the Novice Category.

Thanks to all of you who contributed to this amazing competition - the quality of entries was even better this year and we are looking forward to a great 2008-09 competition. If you didn't win this year, don't despair and continue to dive, take photos and submit them to us ...

The prizes for our 4th annual competition were absolutely AMAZING! - thanks to all the sponsors of this comp.

We have seen over thousand fantastic entries over the last year and the winners of the 12 monthly competitions were in the finals to compete for very exciting prizes, including a week dive trip for two at Lotus Hotels & Resorts with the choice of Villa Almarik, Gili Trawangan, Lombok or Bali, a custom made dry suit from APOLLO, a TAKA liveaboard trip from Cairns and a dive trip for TWO to the Tutukaka coast, New Zealand with Poor Knights Divers in New Zealand.


A VERY big THANKS to the judges which included legendary underwater photographer Michael Aw and contemporary underwater artist Richard Vevers from Underwater Australia as well as of course us, the underwater team ...
OK - to the winners of the 2007-08 competition ... drum roll
