These are the best underwater photos of 2018 according to the Ocean Art Underwater Photo Competition
Undoubtedly, the underwater world attracts the attention of everyone, of course photographers. Therefore, it is not uncommon that there are many fans and several photo contests in this area. For example, the Ocean Art Underwater Photo Competition, where we will show you the winning photos that would be among the best underwater photography images of 2018.
This is a contest we did not know and is hosted by The Underwater Photography Guide, the first free underwater photography guide dedicated to its creator, Californian photographer Scott Gietler. He created this portal with the idea to share his love of this discipline and make it accessible to all types of audience.
And among other initiatives, for seven years it has also organized this contest to choose the best underwater photographs and subsidize them with 80 thousand dollars in prizes (in this edition), that offered in kind (mainly in the form of trips and stays in exotic places where scuba diving is practiced) thanks to different sponsors.
The contest is organized around 16 categories that include several that are repeated because it discriminates between photographers who use SLR cameras, without mirrors or compact cameras. There is also a category for novices and, as a novelty in this edition, one of “Underwater Art”. Among the winners of all of them is an absolute winner who takes the title Best of the Show and would happen to be the ” best underwater photographer of 2018 “.
