Underwater Photographer of the Year 2019
The 2019 Underwater Photographer of the Year is now open for entries.
Entrants have until 4th January 2019 (midnight GMT) to enter their images into the world's premier underwater photography competition.
Judging takes place on 6th - 8th January 2019 and every single image entered will be seen at least twice by our panel of judges.
To honour our commitment to the continuous development of the UPY competition we've added two new categories and one new award.
Don't forget you can still see the 2018 winning images or download the 2018 Yearbook as a great source of inspiration.
There are 10 international and 4 British waters categories in the 2019 Underwater Photographer of the Year Awards
