A great dive is hard to put into words, and often equally challenging to put on film.

But those of us who explore with cameras occasionally return with images that truly capture our passion for diving. If you've surfaced with a shot that conveys the wonder, excitement, camaraderie or humor of diving, send it our way, and we'll give you a shot at winning a new Suunto dive computer. Of course, with any competition, there are rules. So read on...

The Suunto Underwater (UW) Photo Competition is for amateur photographers only (those who make 5 percent or less of their annual income through photography).

Photos must be submitted to [email protected] between November 8, 2006 and March 30, 2007.

The winning photo will be chosen in April 2007 by a jury of Suunto employees and the following professional underwater photographers:

Kimmo Hagman
Kimmo Hagman always dives with his underwater camera and in his portfolio he has collected amazing shots from above and under water. Kimmo is 45 and now lives in Hurghada, right by the Egyptian Red Sea, where he works as dive centre manager for Colona divers.

Ralf Åström
"I tend to be a "macro guy" since you can find macro subjects on all dives and visibility. Often I have problems deciding weather to do macro or wide angle which leads me to carry two camera setups. This usully ends up in a mess since I can't concentrate on either kind of subjects."

The grand winner will receive a Suunto Vyper2 or Suunto Cobra2 of winner's choice, along with other Suunto goodies.

Both the winning photos and the exceptional photos chosen by jury will be published in the Diving World in April 2007

To submit a photo, it must be yours. You need to have taken it, and it must be your intellectual property.

The photo submitted can be maximum of 5 MB and it needs to be in .jpg format.

In submitting an image, you grant Suunto the right to use it for media purposes.

Before submitting your image you read through and agree the "Suunto Underwater Photo Competition" rules (follow this link: ... _31e61.pdf).
