Underwater Photographer of the Year 2023

UPY2023 is now closed for entries.

16 January 2023: All entrants have now been contacted about their results. Please check your email (and spam folder). Entrants can log in and check their results.

Judging takes place on 9 - 11 January and we are delighted that our panel of judges is once again meeting in person to make sure that every image entered is scrutinised and considered for our winners circle.

We will keep you informed of our progress here, and across our social media channels: UPY on Instagram, UPY on Facebook and UPY on Twitter.

The UPY team would like to thank everyone who entered this year's competition. We are humbled that so many of you choose to support us, and through the UPY competition the wider diving community.

Finally, we would once again like to thank all of our sponsors for your continued support.
