GALLERY: Stunning images from underwater photography competition reveal life below the waves

These stunning images are among the winners in the prestigious Ocean Art Underwater Photo Competition for 2019.

Showcasing the best underwater photographs from all across the world, the competition attracted a high calibre of entries from top photographers.

Winner of The Best of Show award is a heart-stopping photo of a crab-eater seal maneuvering quickly through freezing waters under Antarctic ice by Greg Lecoeur.

The winner of the Rising Star Photographer Award, and a close runner-up for best of show, was Julie Casey with a jaw-dropping photo of 6 juvenile seahorses.

Other extraordinary winders include dramatic animal behaviour, stunning marine life portraits, heart wrenching and uplifting conservation scenes and weird and wonderful blackwater creatures.

The judges evaluated thousands of entries from 78 countries before selecting the final set of images as Ocean Art winners.

Over $85,000 in prizes will be awarded, making the Ocean Art prize value among the highest in the world.

Bluewater Photo and Travel owner and Underwater Photography Guide publisher, Scott Gietler commented: “I continue to be amazed by the wonderful images that today’s underwater photographers are producing.

“The two new categories, Conservation and Blackwater, were true standout categories.

“Especially the Conservation category – the winning images produce powerful emotion, and will influence a new generation of ocean conservation.”
