  16 Weeks to participate


The theme - Image Half air - Half water - Professional videographer

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

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

  • The Mediterranean 
  • The half-air, half-water image

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

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

General information and details on the theme:
- The contest is open to all videographers.
- To participate, you must choose either the amateur or professional category. If you select the wrong category, your registration will be rejected and your film will be considered as out of competition.
- The contest aims to promote scuba diving.
-  All videos must include at least some underwater images.
-  For the Mediterranean theme,  the contest is an opportunity to raise public awareness of the beauty  of the Mediterranean Sea. There may be a terrestrial part and necessarily an underwater part, and only in the Mediterranean Sea. The film location must be specified.
- For the Half-air - half-water image theme: The location of the film is free. Films may include a terrestrial section and an underwater section, with a compulsory one minute of half-air/half-water images.
- A competitor may participate in both themes, but only in one category.

Each participant may submit a maximum of 1 to 3 films.

Films integration and time :
- The easiest way to integrate videos is to copy the URL of the YouTube video as it appears in the browser.
