Each month, Scuba Symphony runs a competition on Facebook with a different theme. For the month of April, the theme was Lionfish.
This is the first time Viki entered the competition so she is delighted to have won first time round!
This is a particularly good competition to enter as you must make a donation to Project Aware in order to have your entry accepted.
Founded 1989, Project AWARE was created by a group of environmental advocates at the Professional Association of Diving Instructors (PADI), who were concerned about emerging threats to the underwater world. In 1992 Project AWARE Foundation became a separate nonprofit organization.
Project AWARE Foundation works in partnership with divers and water enthusiasts to combat challenges facing underwater environments. Project AWARE and dedicated volunteers are committed to conservation initiatives including:
- Underwater Cleanups and Marine Debris Prevention
- Coral Reef Conservation, Monitoring and Data Collection
- Shark Education, Reporting and Conservation
- Improved Management Policies and Marine Protection Efforts
- Environmental Training for Divers and Education Programs for Kids
Entering is easy. Just go to the Scuba Symphony Facebook Page and post your picture and proof of dontation to project aware.
Most months, the picture which receives the highest amount of ‘likes’ or votes wins, and if a tie occurs, then the judges will make the final decision. Sometimes, like last month, the judges will make the decision regardless of the amount of ‘likes’ a picture has.
For this month, the theme is Turtles, so get your best turtle pic, make your donation and get as many ‘likes’ as you can! Prizes are fairly substantial so any of you budding underwater photographers should give it a go; you can only win it if you’re in it!!
