AUGUST 2017

 

British and Irish Underwater Photography Championship 2017 (BIUPC)

26th August 2017

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.

A 26th August 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.

Photographers will compete for five awards and associated prizes, foremost being a trophy in memory of one of BSoUP's co-founders, the late Peter Scoones, and the title British & Irish Underwater Photography Champion 2017

Images can be taken and submitted electronically from anywhere within the championship geographic boundary from 10pm Friday 25th August to 10pm Saturday 26th August 2017. The competition is open to all underwater photographers of all nations, with contestants demonstrating the underwater photographic and post-production skills to produce high impact British and Irish images within a limited time frame. Images can be from any body of salt or fresh water in the seas, rivers, streams and lakes of our islands.

BSoUP will convene a panel of three judges (to be announced) during the week following the competition. The results will be announced week commencing 11th September and the awards presented in London on 19th December 2017.

JUNE 2018

Gulen Lembeh SHootout

Lembeh vs Gulen Shootout 2018

The SHOOTOUT, which will be held from 15 to 23 June 2018, will again pitch two teams head to head in a live underwater photography contest.  A team from the beautiful Gulen Dive Resort (www.gulendiveresort.com) in Norway will be competing with their opposing team at the equally beautiful Lembeh Resort (www.lembehresort.com) in Indonesia. The first contest, in 2016, resulted in the narrowest of last-minute victories for the team from Lembeh.

The 2018 event is proud to announce that captaining the Lembeh team will be the world-renown professional underwater photographer, Alex Mustard (http://www.amustard.com) and in the corner for Gulen will be another big hitter of the underwater imaging world, Keri Wilk. (www.keriwilk.com).
