Congratulations to the following winners of Asia Dive Expo Voice of the Ocean 2019 Photo + Video + Art Competition:
Compact of the Year – Miguel Ramirez – Reflection – Reunion Island
Environmental Photo of the Year -Massimo Zannini – Our Future
On April 17, we announced “The Noose – Carcharhinus Longimanus” by Nicholas Samaras as the winning entry for the “Environmental Photo of the Year” category in our Voice of the Ocean (VOO) Underwater Photography Competition.
However, upon the announcement of the results, it was brought to our attention that the winning entry had infringed one of the conditions of the competition (Clause No. 6: Images/videos/artworks that have won or placed in photo contests announced before 28 February 2019 may not be submitted) as it had previously been awarded first place in the Beneath the Sea Imaging Competition. After thorough investigation and careful deliberation, we have decided to disqualify the entry and vacate its first place position in favour of the First Runner-up entry, “Our Future”, by Massimo Zannini of the Philippines.
We hereby announce Massimo Zannini as the NEW WINNER of the “Environment Photo of the Year” category for his entry “Our Future”. Congratulations, Massimo, for winning the “Environment Photo of the Year” award!
However, we have been very impressed with the powerful message captured in “The Noose – Carcharhinus Longimanus” and have decided to award it the VOO Honourable Mention award. We would also like to congratulate the photographer for winning first place in the “Beneath the Sea” Imaging Competition, the results of which was announced on February 19, 2019.

On April 17, we announced the “Row” as the winning submission for the “Underwater Fashion Photo of the Year” in our Voice of the Ocean (VOO) Underwater Photography Competition.
As the winning entry has infringed one of the conditions of the competition (ie the use of photoshop to merge two images into one), we have decided to vacate its first place position in favour of the first runner-up entry by Meaghan Ogilvie of Canada.
Congratulations, Meaghan! You are the NEW WINNER of the Underwater Fashion Photo of the Year category!
