Underwater photos show shipwrecks, sharks, deep-sea animals


For most of us, it’s extremely difficult to observe ocean animals in their natural habitats — let alone capture pictures to show our friends later.

But that’s not the case for these award-winning photographers.

UnderwaterPhotography.com recently announced the winners of its annual photo contest for the 2018-2019 year.

The contest is one of the longest-running and most prestigious online photo competitions — every year, hundreds of photographers from around the world submit thousands of photographs in a range of categories, from “Close-ups” to “Wrecks.” Images are judged by a group that includes industry professionals, previous competition winners, and UnderwaterPhotography.com moderators.

This year, photographers submitted 4,121 entries. Only a few dozen walked away with medals in each category.
