Underwater Photographer of the Year Media Coverage

The 2015 competition received an enormously positive response from the world's press once the winners and finalists had been announced. Interest came from many countries, and not just from the scuba/underwater photographic media either. The level of interest proves what a stunning collection of images the finalists were and reflects the very high standard of entries received in the first year of the UPY competition.
