It says that female underwater photographers have until now been “somewhat under-represented” in competitions.
“We believe every photo and video has a story and we are not looking for ‘the best’ photo or video; we are looking for the story behind it, the effort it took and the hurdles you jumped through to get the shot.”
The competition has four categories – Beginners, Wide Angle, Macro and Videography – with photographers Adrienne Gittus and Claudia Schmitt judging the winners in each one.
It is open to entries from female photographers only until 13 October, and prizes include a Red Sea liveaboard trip, a camera, an action-cam housing and a £500 dive-gear voucher.
Participants can upload no more than a single entry per category, each one of which has its own page.
