“Each spring, the University of Miami’s Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science hosts an underwater photography contest open to amateur photographers who earn no more than 20 percent of their income from photography. Since its inception in 2005, the contest has drawn entrants from across the globe submitting more than 400 images per year. Photographs are judged in five separate categories: Fish or Marine Animal Portrait, Macro, Wide Angle, Student, and Best Overall. The winning images are announced at one of the Rosenstiel School’s Sea Secrets lectures and are displayed in a traveling exhibit throughout the South Florida community. For information on exhibiting, contact Carla Lovinsky at 305-421-4061 or clovinsky@rsmas.miami.edu.”
