Who can enjoy the competition?
Underwater photography is extremely popular these days and more and more divers are taking underwater pictures. Do you also take underwater pictures? We would very much appreciate if you will join us on (one of) our competition days in 2011.
Don’t think “I just started” or “I am not good enough yet”. The Zeeuws Championship is a perfect competition for all starter underwater photographers. There is nothing to lose, only to win. If you are not a winner of one of the beautiful prices there is to win, then at least you will have the experience of competition in the beautiful waters of Zeeland where the competition takes place every year. Let the competition inspire you to make more beautiful pictures and learn by having contact with the other competitors. If you see beautiful pictures of top photographers in the magazines, just realise that they also had to start somewhere too.
The Open Dutch Championship
Apart from the beginners there is a wide variety of photographers that already have some more experience right up to top photographers whose photographs regularly appear in magazines.
How to organize a competition that is approachable to everyone, but also has enough of a challenge for the very best national and international photographers.
The organising committee Aquashot succeeded in having the right formula!!
We achieved this by having different opportunities to join the competitions.
• You are free to join the competition in one or more categories.
• You are free to participate on one or both competition days.
Imagine that you decide to take only macro pictures during both competition days. Then you will create a fairly good chance to shoot one of the winning images in this category. There are beautiful prices to win in each category and your winning image and name will appear in many dive magazines. Also many dive websites will place the winning pictures.
Enough of a challenge for the very best photographers?
It is not an easy task to take the best pictures in all five categories. Whatever the diving circumstances are, you will be in a field of very good international photographers. If you succeed in this you can call yourself Dutch Open Champion 2011. Also in this competition there are very nice prices to win. We hope to see many international competitors during the competion in Zeeland this year.
For all the detailed information keep an eye on this website.
