$20,000 underwater photo shootout

Bluewater Photo’s 5th Annual SoCal Shootout
September 18-20th, 2015 • Over $20,000 worth of prizes


Bluewater Photo is excited to announce the 5th annual SoCal Shootout, happening September 18-20th, 2015. This weekend long competition brings together underwater photographers of all levels throughout Southern California. Starting Friday morning and spanning through Sunday night, participants have the opportunity to shoot photos in the Pacific Ocean anywhere south of Pt. Conception to north of the Mexican border to be eligible. Continuing into its 5th year, entry for the competition is still only $40. Those interested in participating can sign up online. Entrants can enter up to 8 photos or three video entries, or a mix of the two. Please see the website for complete information and rules.

The SoCal Shootout is designed for photographers of all levels with a variety of categories to enter including separate categories for different camera formats, such as compact vs dSLR. This year’s contest brings a small restructuring to our categories, introducing two new mirrorless categories due to the popularity of this camera format. We will continue to have our Edited Video category which offers entrants to submit a short video narrative composed of multiple shots and added audio or music.
