About the Epson Red Sea Competition
The Epson Red Sea 2009 event will take place on November 9-14th in Eilat, Israel. This will be the 5th year in a row in which the Red Sea World of Underwater Images event is being held in Eilat, while prizes are rapidly increasing from one year to another.
The competition is open for all underwater photographers, including amateurs, professionals, videographers and more, and consists of two main categories. The first is called Images of the World, in which participants are invited to submit images that were shot anytime and anywhere around the world, without even attending the competition. The second category is called Eilat Shoot-Out, in which participants submit only images that are taken during the three days of this competition in Eilat.
Prizes this year are valued at more than $80,000 and include luxurious diving trips in exotic destinations, expensive diving gear, professional underwater photography equipment and of course- cash prizes. The first prize this year, one of many others, is a $10,000 check plus a trip for two to Papua New Guinea for 3 weeks including airfare.
