Ocean Photography Awards, the beauty of the oceans and their threats


Ocean Photography Awards

The finalists for the annual Ocean Photography Awards competition were.

The images presented in the contest give an account of the rich and varied life of the oceans, where they inhabit from multicolored squids to strange translucent creatures that prowl the seabed.

As some of the photos sent to the jury reveal, the interaction of human beings with the natural environment is not always positive. To the known dangers are now added the masks against covid-19, which are already appearing in the sea and causing great damage to the animals that live in these habitats.

The competition’s mission is simple: to highlight the beauty of our planet’s oceans as well as the threats it faces.
