Don’t forget to join us for our Underwater Tour event, where the concept of an annual awards contest was first conceived!

Since 2018 and usually held in theatres in the major state capitals around Australia, our aim each year is to bring you a collective of ethical internationally acclaimed underwater photographers and marine scientists, all top in their fields, traveling together to showcase, present and share their incredible stories of discovery from behind the lens.

Announcing this year’s event…..
