VII International Underwater Photography Contest

From October 10th to November 1st
Venice, Natural History Museum


This year, the museum will again host the Exhibition of the International Underwater Photography Contest organised by Abissi- UnderwaterPhotoVenice, the Club Subacqueo San Marco, Gruppo Argo and Scubashooters in its “Cetaceans Gallery”.

In the last edition, the jury of experts looked at over 400 photographs of the highest quality taken in the seas around the world, and selected the 33 winning images sent by photographers from the United States, Indonesia, Norway, Spain, Greece, the UK and Italy.

In order to show the material collected to best effect and promote a love and respect for the sea and the creatures living in it, the participants will give their images to the museum, adding to its archives for didactic and cultural purposes.

Moreover, as in past editions, the public will be able to vote for its favourite photograph amongst those on show: the vote, which may be cast even by the “littlest” visitors, will be published on the museum’s site at the end of the exhibition.
