Underwaterphotography.com has a yearly contest for underwater photography and the winners this year are incredible! We’ve posted 10 of our favorites here but be sure to check out the site to see all the winners and runners up. Above is the first place winner from the over/under category. It was taken in Mexico by Uwe Schmolke. Here’s some more information on the contest:

Winning here (or even just being placed) is Underwater Photography’s most coveted accolade because it says you succeeded in the most competitive environment there is, against the top talent of the moment.

Every year a panel of judges select the best images entered in our online photo contest from the previous year. Gold, silver, and bronze medals are awarded for the top three from each category in order of merit.

The judges comprise of industry professionals, previous year’s World Champions, our site moderators – anyone we can rope in! They are unpaid, non-affiliated, and (of course) cannot vote for themselves.
