2010 Underwater Photography Contest Winners Announced

28.05.2010
In its sixth annual Underwater Photography Contest, the University of Miami Rosenstiel School of Marine & Atmospheric Science attracted a diverse array of national and international photographic talent representing more than 20 countries and nearly 600 images which competed in three categories: “wide angle,” “macro,” and “fish or marine animal portrait.” Recognition was also given to the best among University of Miami student entries.

Winning images were chosen via anonymous judging by a panel of experts in underwater photography and fine arts, including underwater photographers Myron and Nicole Wang and Rosenstiel School Marine Biology & Fisheries Professor Dr. Michael Schmale. The competition is open to all amateur photographers who earn no more than 20 percent of their income from their photography.

Awards included a weeklong trip with Blackbeard’s Cruises and cash prizes. Images of all the winning photos are available at http://www.rsmas.miami.edu/support/advancement/uw-2010/w.html
