UPY 2020 UndewaterPhotographeroftheYear

Welcome to UPY 2020, in my view the strongest collection yet! As always the category winners are jaw-dropping, but this year every single image is worthy of your attention. UPY always aims to showcase the diversity of disciplines and photographic styles that comprise ‘underwater photography’ and we love seeing photographers pushing the technical and artistic boundaries of the genre. We also appreciate classic images, when taken to new heights, and I am thrilled that UPY 2020 contains all these and more, with a real diversity of photos taken in waters from the polar oceans to the swimming pool. 2020 was another record breaker for UPY with entries rising to 5500, and the number of photographers also jumping up to 500! Thank you to those who continue to support UPY as well as those entering for the first time. We appreciate and enjoy seeing every image we receive. We were also pleased that the Underwater Photography Book of the Year category was the strongest yet, with a very tight field of excellent submissions, all would be a worthy addition to any underwater enthusiast’s bookshelf.

SCUBA DIVING, 10 Stunning Jellyfish

Photos 10 Stunning Jellyfish From Our Underwater Photo Contest By Scuba Diving Editors October 9, 2017 0 Comments Judging the Through Your Lens photo contest is one of our favorite parts of the year at Scuba Diving — but it’s also one of the most challenging. For the 2017 contest, we sifted through more than 2,500 awesome entries to find the best of the best in underwater photography. We wanted to highlight some of our favorite images that didn’t make the winner’s circle, but that blew us away nonetheless. Jellyfish are exciting to see on any dive. Here are our favorite jellies from the 2017 contest.   http://www.scubadiving.com/10-stunning-jellyfish-from-our-underwater-photo-contest          

Sarajevo, Underwater Photography Competition / la Repubblica, Napoli

    Sarajevo, Underwater Photography Competition MEDITERRANEAN PORTFOLIO 3 Place                     La rana pescatrice di Sorrento, un’esotica bavosa africana gialla, la medusa di Bacoli e una seppia, a Capo Miseno: un inno alla biodiversità del mare campano raccontato ed esaltato dai fotografi più bravi al mondo, rigorosamente campani. La quarta edizione del concorso di fotografia subacquea “Without borders” di Sarajevo incorona i talenti partenopei: sei sue dieci i campani finalisti della categoria “Portfolio Mediterraneo”, con un podio che parla interamente napoletano. E che, soprattutto, esalta la bellezza della fauna marina del Golfo di Napoli e dei suoi immediati dintorni. Al primo posto, Marco Gargiulo, figlio d’arte, premiato per tre scatti bellissimi che immortalano, nel mare della Costiera sorrentina, una bavosa africana dalla livrea gialla (una specie aliena arrivata attraverso il canale di Suez, ormai diffusissima), una rana pescatrice in versione notturna e uno spirografo in controluce. Con uno scatto a una medusa con lo sfondo, inconfondibile, del Vesuvio, Gargiulo si è anche classificato secondo nella categoria “grandangolo”. Al secondo posto nella categoria “Porfolio Mediterraneo”, Salvatore Ianniello, che ha scattato nel mare di casa, tra Bacoli e l’isola di Procida, immortalando una […]
