The Lundy annual “Splash-In!” underwater photographic competition is going online this year in an attempt to attract more entries.
Although Lundy is the largest island in the Bristol Channel it has a tiny population, and being 12 miles off north Devon is accessible only by boat. It was England’s first marine nature reserve, and the first Marine Conservation Zone.
The previous on-the-day photo contests, held for the past few summers as a way of celebrating Lundy’s marine life, have provided some compelling images but usually attract only a few dozen regular Lundy divers. With an online-only event it is expected that a wider selection of visitors will be able to contribute.
The deadline for entries is the end of September and judging takes place straight afterwards. You can find the rules here
