The organizers of the Ocean Images Awards have declared this year’s finalists. The competition’s 6 categories are: Collective Portfolio, Youth Photographer of the 12 months, Exploration Photographer of the Calendar year, Conservation Photographer of the 12 months, Journey Photographer of the Year, and the Neighborhood Preference Award. As you’d hope, there are a good deal of DPGers between the talented finalists, together with Matty Smith, Galice Hoarau, Nicholas Samaras, Henley Spiers, and Tanya Houppermans.

The winners are determined by community vote and will be introduced from September 10th–16th through a series of movies. The profitable illustrations or photos will be shown at an open-air exhibition in London from September 17th.
