100s of marine enthusiasts from across the world will descend beneath the surface of the waters of the whole of Australasia to help create an underwater snapshot of our amazing bioregion, and show the world what we have to lose.

The 5th Underwater Festival – The Australasian Challenge aims to create a movement which not unlike an ‘Underwater Earth Hour’ alerts the world not just about the issues, but also about the beauty of the underwater world around us.

25 countries spanning both hemispheres – every dive site you can imagine will be a shootout locality, every dive centre, liveaboard, dive resort in the area will facilitate this new kind of shootout. You can dive your local favourite spots, go out with your dive club or shore dive with your buddy – or travel and join in one of the many Underwater Festival Fringe Events that will be happening all over Australasia.

Supported and sponsored by many big brands in the in the dive and travel industry, nearly $150,000 in prizes can be won by participating in this unique event. Photos and video have to be captured between the 2nd and the 11th of September and uploaded to the Underwater Festival website by the 18th of September – there are 15 unique photography categories and 5 video categories. Judging happens online by an international panel of award winning underwater photographers and prizes will be announced at the inaugural Oceania Dive & Ecotourism Expo at the RNA Showgrounds in Brisbane from the 7th to the 9th of October where a whole hall will be dedicated to showcase the best entries of this massive event.

$25,000 in prizes will be drawn amongst all entrants, independent of their entry quality to encourage broad participation without the fear of ‘not being good enough’ to win.

So, where will YOU dive?
