Organized by the Underwater Photography Guide, the Ocean Art Underwater Photo Competition offers the public to see some of the best underwater photographs of the year. An international contest nominated the best underwater images. In 2019, 78 countries participated in different categories such as super macro, reef scape, marine life behavior or portrait, Amon others. This way, we can dive into this other world, without the need to thread flippers on. To decide on the winners, the jury was composed of underwater photographers: Martin Edge, Marty Snyderman, and Tony Wu. But also by the editor of the Guide to Underwater Photography Scott Gietler.
