UF11 will feature a shootout competition that happens simultaneous all over Australasia – 25 countries spanning both hemispheres – every dive you can imagine will be a shootout locality, every dive centre, liveaboard, 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

Become part of this huge event and not unlike an underwater ‘Earth Hour’ help to highlight the underwater beauty but also the underwater issues of this fantastic bioregion and help to show the world what we’ve got to lose.

Mark these days in your calendar – you have 10 days to shoot – from the 2nd to the 11th of September 2011.

The Western Australian Underwater Photographic Society, proudly supported by Perth Scuba will be one of dozens of Underwater Festival Fringe Events that are planned all over Australasia during the 10-day shootout period. During the festival Perth Scuba will be home to WAUPS informative seminars, free underwater photography equipment trials, discounted PADI Digital Underwater Photography courses and of course plenty of diving.

The top 100 images will be showcased at the new Australian Dive & Tavel Expo ODEX in Brisbane on the second weekend in October 2011. A whole hall will be devoted to the Festival and seminars as well as the Underwater Festival Awards will be held during the 3 days of ODEX 2011.
