2021 Underwater Tour Awards

A natural extension of the annual Underwater Tour speaker series, this prestigious new international photography competition guarantees to take us on a remarkable visual tour of our underwater world. Celebrating the best of the ocean, the Underwater Tour Awards 2020 encourage and inspire passion, exploration and discovery from behind the lens.

We welcome photographers from around the globe to take part, promoting the art of aquatic photography, raising awareness of our incredible marine and aquatic environments and sharing adventures and discoveries with our like-minded community.

For participating photographers in Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide, Perth and Auckland, competition entries include the option of incorporating an Underwater Tour evening event ticket with their registration. Participants entering five (5) images will receive a complimentary Underwater Tour ticket in the Underwater Tour event city of their choice.
