Our oceans are our lifeblood. Covering more than 70 percent of our planet, they produce oxygen, regulate the earth’s climate, provide food and provide a livelihood for millions. They are also home to most of the life on earth, from microscopic algae to the blue whale. White spray, rolling waves, a cool embrace, the oceans are our global treasure.

The theme for the photo contest is Celebrating our Oceans and Ocean Life. Contestants can upload photos of the ocean, including underwater photos, ocean life and animals etc.

The contest starts on the 9th September 2019 and closes on the 1st November 2019.
