UN World Oceans Day Photo Competition

2024 Photo Competition for UN World Oceans Day
This free competition is open to the public and explores the six thematic categories open for submissions. The categories are purposely broad to encourage photographers interpretations and artistic visions.
Photography is a powerful medium to convey a feeling or a message. This open and free photo competition seeks to inspire the creation of imagery capturing the beauty, the challenges and the importance of the ocean and humankind’s relation to it, hoping to contribute to actions to preserve this vital resource.

While the ocean covers 71% of the Earth’s surface, we have hardly explored 5% of this vast, mysterious world that holds the key to unlocking new ways of coexistence and taking care of our future, and that of the next generation, with respect of all life. Can you capture, in a single image, the essence of people working on understanding and feeling the connection to the ocean? Or have you witnessed this bond on land? Then enter the “Small Island Developing States” category, with a chance to have your image displayed at the 4th International Conference on Small Island Developing States in May 2024.

The photo competition has five thematic categories open for submissions:

NEWAwaken New Depths
Images that appeal to new depths of compassion, understanding, collaboration, and commitment for the ocean and the issues it faces. Photos that influence our perspectives and make us fundamentally reconsider not only our relationship to the ocean but also our methods and mediums of honoring, nurturing, and protecting it
NEWSmall Island Developing States
Images showcasing the beauty of Small Island Developing States (SIDS) and demonstrating the intimate connection of SIDS and their people to the ocean. Entries in this category may have the chance to have their images displayed at the 4th International Conference on Small Island Developing States, to be held in Antigua and Barbuda from May 27th–30th, 2024
Big and Small Underwater Faces
Portraits of marine life underwater that feature faces big and/or small to help personalize the world beneath the waves
Underwater Seascapes
Awe-inspiring underwater seascapes of the ocean’s splendors, from life in the ocean to ecosystems and exchanges we don’t typically see, anything that inspires beauty, promise, or potential. A minimum of 50% should be taken underwater, also allowing half-above water and half-below water shots
Above Water Seascapes
Landscapes depicting an environment dependent on the ocean, taken above water
Winning images will be recognized at the United Nations on June 7th during the United Nations event marking World Oceans Day 2024. Recognition and diffusion of the winning images and finalists will be widely exposed throughout the contest websites, the media and the informational materials related to subsequent competitions. Winning photos have been printed for exhibitions around the world.

Entries must be submitted electronically in accordance with the contest guidelines and subject to the contest rules.

All entries must be submitted by April 7th, 2024 at 11:59pm Eastern Standard Time (EST).

The contest is open to entrants of all skill levels.
