In celebration of our rich and diverse maritime heritage AIMA is holding its second shipwreck photography competition.
Photographers from all over the world are invited to send in their best photos of any shipwrecks or other underwater cultural heritage above or below Australian or New Zealand waters. You don't have to be a pro, you just have to have a keen eye and a willingness to take a great snap, and you could win a prize!
The competition is being run from January 2012 to December 2012, with judging occurring each month. Any entries received after the 1st of the month will automatically go into the following month's competition.
Images must have been taken in 2012 (except for the January 2012 prize which can be an image taken prior to 2012).
All winners will be announced in the DIVELOG magazine from February 2012 to January 2013.
