The OZTek2019 Underwater Photographic Competition underwent a significant re-vamp and became a primarily OCEANIA competition - with only one category open to international photographers. The aim was to provide a showcase for, and to encourage Australian and New Zealand photographers - I’m thrilled to report we had our highest entries ever with LOTS of new names, especially those entering a photographic competition for the first time. Very exciting.

Winners were announced in the Scubapix Imaging Centre at OZTek and are now on the website. Congratulations to all entries, and, of course, the winners - some beautiful images. See them here.
The Nikon Dive Shot of the Year had its debut in conjunction with the Nikon Surf Shot of the Year and as always, created huge interest. Congratulations to all the winners.

We do attempt to hold the Nikon Dive Shot of the Year annually, where possible, with continued support from Nikon Australia. Many thanks too to Scubapix for their sponsorship, these things don’t happen without additional support and it is much appreciated. This competition was disrupted by COVID, like so much else but watch out for upcoming details now we have a new confirmed event date.

The last competition was judged by a panel of experienced judges & photographers: Jayne Jenkins, Matty Smith, Chris Dalton and myself. Thank you everyone for your hard work.
