Held annually, the 6th Underwater Festival™ 2012 (UF12) continues along the concept of the 2011 event. With the tagline 'The Australasia Challenge' it incorporates an Australasia-wide simultaneous photo and video shootout competition like no other with over U$100,000 in prizes.
UF12 features a shootout competition that happens simultaneous all over Australasia - 25 countriesspanning both hemispheres - every dive you can imagine is a shootout locality, every dive centre, liveaboard, resort in the area can facilitate this new kind of shootout. You can dive your local favourite spots, go out with your dive club or shore dive with your buddy
Become part of this huge event and not unlike an underwater 'Earth Hour' help to highlight the underwater beauty but also the underwater issues of this fantastic bioregion and help to show the world what we've got to lose.
Mark your calendar - 1 month to shoot - from the 1st to the 30th of September 2012.
If you like organised events, dozens of Underwater Festival Fringe Events are planned all over Australasia during September 2012 (new page coming soon). To get an idea of what kind of events might await you, please check out the official 2011 Underwater Festival Fringe event page (opens in new window).
