Ocean in Focus: Conservation Photography Contest

The Marine Photobank, a program of, is holding a photo contest titled "Ocean in Focus - Conservation Photography Contest." The purpose of the contest is to collect images that show the other side of the coin when it comes to the conditions of our oceans.

With print and online media understandably choosing ocean images that are beautiful and visually striking, the readers/viewers are unfortunately presented with images that seem to imply that everything is okay, that the oceans are healthy. If you are an experienced diver, you know this is not the case and a more balanced portrait would be more in order.

The contest opened on World Ocean Day, June 8th, and continues through the end of September. To learn more, go to web site or click here.
