Underwater Photographer of the Year 2019

The UPY team are excited to announce that the results of the Underwater Photographer of the Year 2019 will be presented live at an award ceremony at the Go Diving show on Sunday 24 February at 3.30pm.

Major winners have already been recording videos for us to play, and a few are coming along to receive their awards too. The winners videos will be available online afterwards.

We are also exhibiting the winning UK entries, as well as a few selected international ones, in a show-case feature for the Go Diving event.

Please see the Go Diving website for details and tickets

The UPY Team would once again like to thank all of our entrants and sponsors for your continued support.
