Gulen Dive Resort

INTERNATIONAL PHOTO COMPETITION 20 MAI-28 MAI

Lembeh Resort Gulen Dive Resort


JOIN US NOW IN A UNIQUE AND INNOVATIVE COOPERATION, LEMBEH RESORT WILL GO “HEAD TO HEAD” WITH GULEN DIVE RESORT IN NORWAY FOR A SPECTACULAR PHOTO-SHOOTOUT.
TWO TEAMS OF PHOTOGRAPHERS ARE WORKING TOGETHER FOR ONE GOAL, TO WIN THE BATTLE TO BECOME THE BEST RESORT AND CONTINENT!
OF COURSE THERE IS ALSO A BATTLE BETWEEN PHOTOGRAPHERS TO WIN THE HONOR AND NOT LEAST VERY GOOD PRICES.


We have with us the largest and most recognized sponsors in the industry and the prices are very attractive, with both cash prizes, trips and equipment. Rounded to approximate $30,000


Who’s got the best critters? Who can get the best images? It’s north against south, warm against cold and critter against critter when the photographers battle it out in the Critter Shootout.


We invite you to join one of the Lembeh/Gulen teams and fight for the honor of your chosen resort as the best critter destination in the world.


The Lembeh group will be led by award-winning photographer Alex Mustard, who will compete against a group at Gulen Dive Resort in Norway lead by the award-winning photographer Tobias Friedrich


The two groups will be on opposite location at the same time, competing over three days to find and photograph the weirdest, most spectacular critters they can find within three categories – fish, nudibranchs and crustaceans. The photographers at both locations will nominate images that will be submitted to an online vote. The winner of the photo contest will be decided by judges and dive community by online public vote.


SPONSORS, PRIZES AND REVIEW


We had not managed to achieve this without sponsors and helpers who can carry voting etc. The biggest and best suppliers have set up with many and great prizes, which enables that all participants will leave with a price to take home. There are cash prizes and several dive vacations, in addition to equipment.
