Underwater Photo Shootout

The inaugural Discovery Passage Underwater photography Shootout is being held this year from Feb 15 to April 15 2021

This shootout is brought to you by Eiko Jones and Roger McDonell (Dive Campbell River)

Photographers of all experience levels are welcome to submit images.

All images need to have been shot within the bounds of Discovery Passage, and in the last three years. 

The purpose of this is to highlight local diving in the Campbell River region and to offer a competition that is solely focused on cold water diving. 

Due to Covid-19 we do not want to be promoting unnecessary travel this year so are only promoting people to come and shoot during this time if they are from the immediate vicinity. In future years we aim to make it a destination shootout, along the lines of the Monterey Bay Shootout, where everyone gathers together at a similar time to “shoot it out” 

We have an esteemed panel of three international judges. David Salvatori, Richard Salas, and Doug Perrine.

There will be one Grand Prize Winner, and prizes for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners in three categories- 

Wide angle, Macro, and Compact Camera.

Entry fees to the shootout will be $10 for a maximum of ten entries over all categories.
