The theme - Half air - Half water - Professional

The 26th Paris International Dive Show, is once again, an opportunity to organise contests to highlight the work of all photographers.

This year, we're proposing two photo contests with two distinct themes:

  • The Mediterranean Sea
  • Half-air – half-water

Compared with other years, and as announced, the Show organizers have decided to make a two category distinction for each theme :

  • “Amateur photographer” category
  • “Professional photographer » category
    A professional photographer is someone who has already won an award in a previous French or international contest.

General information and details:
- The contest is open to all photographers
- To participate, you must choose either the amateur or professional category. If you select the wrong category, your registration will be rejected and your images will be considered as out of competition.
