Everyone loves to be a winner so we hand out participation trophies... Just kidding! Every year our sponsors donate a variety of prizes and giveaways for our participants. We've given away dive travel, SCUBA equipment, photo equipment, gift certificates, handmade arts and crafts... We'll give away anything we can get our hands on and call it a prize because you guys are special!
The guys with the biggest cameras are by no means guaranteed to win the big prizes. By the time our judges drag themselves away from the resort bar to judge the entries all they're really seeing are fish shaped blurs of color anyway. Almost every year someone with a point and shoot camera and a snorkel walks away with a great prize!
