Please remember these dates!

Here are the important dates for the 2022 Underwater Photographer of the Year competition. There is no need to wait until the last minute to submit your images as you can always delete and re-submit different photos should you change your mind before the final submission deadline.


1 November 2021 - Website opens for registration and entries to be submitted online.

4 January  2022 - Closing date for all entries (midnight GMT), no other images will be accepted after this date.


Judging usually takes place immediately after entry closes and the winners will be notified as soon as possible afterwards. After this, all entrants will be invited to see how each of their images progressed through the contest via our bespoke feedback system.
