Ocean Geographic Pictures of the Year - "Creative Vision" 1st place
Congratulations Winners & all competitors! this year entries are exceptional. In the words of Doug Perrrine - This is the most difficult competition I have ever had to judge. The quality of entries is beyond anything I have had to select from before; it painful to have to choose just a few to even receive at least honourable mentions. I wouldn’t be surprised to see a number of these win other competitions. There were several strong images illustrating environmental issues that could easily win an “environmental problems” category in a photo competition.
