The British & Irish Underwater

Photography Championship 2020

Saturday 29 August

This competition engages the British and Irish underwater photography community in a one day competition shoot out. It is accessible to people who live and dive at different locations around Scotland, Wales, Ireland, Northern Ireland and England, including the Isle of Man, the Channel Islands, the Isles of Scilly and the other 5000 or so other islands around our shores that are bounded by the Atlantic Ocean, the English Channel and the North Sea.

A late August/ early September on-the-day multi-location competition format reduces the travel and cost burden for competitors, whilst at the same time encouraging a level of participation commensurate with a true championship. The competition date for 2020 is Sat 29th August.

Photographers will compete for the trophy in memory of one of BSoUP's co-founders, the late Peter Scoones, and the title British & Irish Underwater Photography Champion 2020

Images can be taken and submitted electronically from anywhere within the championship geographic boundary from 10pm on the Friday to 10pm Saturday. The competition is open to all underwater photographers of all nations, but images must be from any body of salt or fresh water in the seas, rivers, streams and lakes of Britain and Ireland. PLEASE NOTE the special procedures in the image submission section (link below) about requirements to set a specific date and time on your camera and to verify image vailidty by photographing a unique image.

BSoUP will convene a panel of judges during the week following the competition. The results will be announced about 2-3 weeks after the competition in a live stream broadcast from the monthly London BSoUP meeting following the competition.
