Ocean in Focus Conservation Photography Contest
SeaWeb’s Marine Photobank and Project AWARE Foundation invite you to submit your compelling photos that engage viewers in pressing marine issues and solutions that address the rapid decline of our ocean’s health.
We challenge you to enter your most engaging environmental photos that illustrate the pressing marine issues and the solutions that aim to reverse the rapid decline of our ocean’s health. Beautiful wildlife imagery is abundant and often implies that our oceans are healthy. This contest is a unique opportunity for you to illuminate the challenges our ocean faces. Photo entries may depict environmental issues including, but not limited to: unsustainable fishing practices, pollution and debris, ocean dumping, oil spills, global warming and climate change, the effects of sea level rise, coastal development, endangered and threatened ecosystems.
Grand prize package (worth more than $2,000) includes:
· Seven nights accomodations at the Plaza Resort Bonaire in the south Caribbean with six days of unlimited shore diving for two, Tuesday night beach BBQ and round-trip airport transfers. Prize worth approximately $1,700.

· Signed copy of ‘Wild Ocean’ by authors Sylvia A. Earle and Wolcott Henry.
