BIUPC 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.
