The results of the prestigious Underwater Photographer of the Year (UPY) 2020 underwater photography competition were announced at the Go Diving dive show in England yesterday.
“2020 was another record breaker for UPY with entries rising to 5500, and the number of photographers also jumping up to 500!” said Dr Alex Mustard, one of the competition organisers and judges.
“UPY always aims to showcase the diversity of disciplines and photographic styles that comprise ‘underwater photography’ and we love seeing photographers pushing the technical and artistic boundaries of the genre. We also appreciate classic images, when taken to new heights, and I am thrilled that UPY 2020 contains all these and more, with a real diversity of photos taken in waters from the polar oceans to the swimming pool” he added.
