Topic: Underwater Photography Competition 11 - 13 March

The Ocean From Below is the first underwater photography competition held by Kon-Tiki Diving on Koh Lanta. Based on Kon-Tiki’s conservation philosophy, the purpose of this competition is to bring together divers with a passion for photography in order to raise awareness of marine life, the coral reef and its importance. Let us show the world the beauty of the aquatic realm and inspire conservation!

All photographers are welcome to enter. There are three different groups depending on your camera and experience: compact, compact+, and SLR/Professional.

On the day of the competition we will set sail for Koh Haa for 3 dives. During these dives the photographers will be given time to capture photographs within each of the following categories: macro, normal/wide angle and a themed category that will be announced on the day.

Registration fee per buddy team (photographer & model) is 4,500 baht. 500 baht per team will go towards Project Aware. If you don’t have a buddy or will need additional guidance, the registration fee is 3,500 baht per photographer and will include the services of a guide.
