Saturday, October 21, 2017

The Hong Kong Underwater Photo and Video Competition 2017 jointly organised by the Agriculture, Fisheries and Conservation Department (AFCD) and the Hong Kong Underwater Association has concluded successfully with an award presentation held today (October 21).

The Hong Kong Underwater Photo and Video Competition was organised for the sixth time since 2012. A total of 436 entries were received this year. Featuring marine ecology, habitats or marine life in Hong Kong waters, all of them were taken during the period from September 19, 2016, to September 17, 2017.

An AFCD spokesman said, "Entries over the years have showcased the beauty of marine life and habitats in Hong Kong waters, and helped promote the conservation of the marine environment."

The event comprised a photo competition and a video competition. There were two categories in the photo competition, namely the Macro and Close-up Category and the Standard and Wide Angle Category. In addition to prizes for champions and runners-up in each group, there were Special Prizes for Junior Underwater Photographers presented by the judging panel to encourage less experienced underwater photographers to participate in the competition.
