Annual Photo Competition 2017

Here are the entries in each of the categories from our the annual Oxford BSAC Underwater Photographer of the Year competition. All images had to have been taken in the three years preceding the competition. Each diver could submit a maximum of three images across the five categories. Images were printed and displayed in the clubhouse, where members voted on their favourites in each category. Anthony Hayes and Jan Pickering each won a category, and the overall joint overall winners were Alex Gibson and Chris Stevens, who also shared one of the categories (Creatures). Well done to everyone who took part! Photographers’ names appear in the captions. Click any image to start a slideshow.
