Last day to shoot the Underwater Festival 2012

Last day of shooting! – Registration closes TONIGHT. Underwater Festival 2012

If you are not registered AND paid for your initial shootout credits by the end of the 30th, you will not be able to submit images. However if you have fully registered and purchased entry credits by the end of this Sunday (30th) you will be able to buy additional entries all the way until the end of the submission date which is Sunday the 7th of October.

PLEASE read the shootout rules BEFORE starting to upload your images or video , most issues so far have been with uploading images that are not .jpg files or that have nor been resized to 200 pixels wide and 1000 pixels wide.

The shooutout entry conditions and rules are online and we have added a QUICK version where you can understand the procedure of participating in 30 seconds!

Most importantly – if you are signed up up or are still considering – set your cameras to 2019 NOW, so you don’t forget (date and time remains the same)
