For this anniversary edition, the themes of the photo contest once again reflect the theme of the next Paris International Dive Show : Diving at 360° !
All types of dives, everywhere, in fresh water, in salt water.
To illustrate and celebrate diving in all its forms, the event organisers are proposing 6 photo contests, with each contest divided into the categories below:
Category 1: Warm waters - Tropical waters
Category 2 : Cold waters - Glaciers
Category 3: Caves - Cenotes - Quarries
Category 4 : Lakes - Rivers
Category 5 : Pools - Pits
Category 6 : Divers' 2024 Portrait
