Want to put your underwater photography skills on display? The July Sport Diver Snapshots monthly underwater photo contest is now open to photographers.
For the July contest, the theme is patterns. Whether it’s color patterns or simply the repeating patterns of underwater animals — think a school of fish — the opportunities underwater are limitless.
“Our brains are addicted to visual order and love photos that show it,” says photographer Alex Mustard. “It’s like a mild case of OCD: When objects are aligned, we find them satisfying and soothing, and when they’re not, it’s infuriating."
Enter your best and most satisfying underwater pattern for the chance to win a Cressi Mask & Snorkel and bragging rights as part of our featured photographers photo gallery. Please read the official rules before entering
