SeaWeb’s adventures with the Marine Photobank project continue to expand. In fact, the 2nd annual Ocean In Focus Conservation Photography Contest, held in concert between SeaWeb and the Project AWARE Foundation, just got underway last week on World Ocean’s Day. The contest runs until August 27th of this summer so if you don’t already have an image to submit consider it a challenge during your summer travels. Wherever you go near the water, take your camera along.

Submissions to the Photobank itself are taken throughout the year to highlight the need for marine conservation efforts but its the summer season when you can get major recognition for your contributions via the contest. Oh, and I should mention the prize (it’s huuuuuuge!): a vacation in Fiji at an ecoadventure resort as well as diving and carbon offsets! Get out there with your lenses and get to work!

  2. I love your new journal format — the blue makes sense. And the photo is a great capture as well. Yes, that numbers game is mind boggling …
