Each year, NPRB conducts a photo contest featuring beautiful images of sea life, seascapes, coastal scenes and marine research within the waters of the North Pacific Ocean including the Gulf of Alaska, Prince William Sound, Bering Sea/Aleutian Islands, Bering Strait or Chukchi/Beaufort Seas.
For the 2015 edition of the North Pacific Research Board’s (NPRB) photo contest, NPRB asks amateur and professional photographers to make a bigger splash—it’s time to go underwater!
Specifically, enter images of underwater sea life and research within the waters of the North Pacific Ocean including the Gulf of Alaska, Prince William Sound, Bering Sea/Aleutian Islands, Bering Strait or Chukchi/Beaufort Seas. Images should relate to NPRB’s research themes including: plankton, invertebrates, fishes, seabirds, marine mammals; or be of people engaged in conducting research, fishing, subsistence, or other activities. For more information, read the Official Rules.
Who Can Enter
The contest is open to photographers of all skill levels who are residents of the United States, except employees of NPRB or their families, members of the NPRB Board of Directors and their immediate families, and members of NPRB Science Panel or Advisory Panel. Non-US residents are welcome to participate in the contest but will not be eligible for a cash prize.
Winners will be announced on or before Friday, May 29, 2015.
A maximum of 5 images will be accepted per entrant. Online submission of digital photographs via the website or by mail on CD.
