Anything goes, but as we are not running a digital manipulation contest, you should exercise care in the decisions that you make.

Divers

Underwater or split images that feature one or more divers (scuba or snorkel) as a prominent element in the frame. This category has no rules regarding digital manipulation.

Compact Camera

Underwater or split images of all kinds, taken by point 'n shoot, non-SLR digital cameras. In this category, no entries from scanned slides or digital SLRs will be accepted. Although there exist many great underwater images taken by point 'n shoot cameras, it is often difficult for them to compete with SLRs when it comes to image quality. In this category, digital manipulation is allowed, but as we are not running a digital manipulation contest, you should exercise care in the decisions that you make.

Environment and Conservation

Topside and underwater images of all kinds, taken by any camera, with a focus on the marine or lake environment and conservation. Subject matter must address a marine or lake-related environmental issue. The goal in this category is to convey a real-world message. In this category, digital manipulation is allowed, but as we are not running a digital manipulation contest, you should exercise care in the decisions that you make.

Indonesian Category

Image taken by someone living in Indonesia. In this category, digital manipulation is allowed, but as we are not running a digital manipulation contest, you should exercise care in the decisions that you make. We reserve the right to request proof of residency in Indonesia.
