Welcome to Cor & Julie's journal

Julie wins prize at Antibes Underwater Festival (Diving, Photography)

It’s the holy grail for many underwater photographers, a prize at Antibes. This year has only been the second year we have entered it, but never did we think either of us would win a price. The best of the best enter this contest. It came as a very unexpected, but pleasant, surprise that Julie won a prize in the portfolio section. Officially named “PRIX APNEA – Meilleure image d’apnée”, I suppose it could be translated as ‘best image of a free diver’. This same image has been a cover for ‘Australasian Scuba Diver’ magazine as well, so it’s been a successful image for Julie. Congrats!

Julie won a second place in the Underwater Art section of the new contest by Australasia Scuba Diver magazine. She won a nice liveaboard price with an image of a pipe fish shot in Indonesia.

For the first time both of us placed in a contest at the same time. Julie placed third in the Wetpixel Our World Underwater contest, while Cor placed third in the Wetpixel Deep Indonesia contest. Cor also had an honorable mention in the OWU contest. Our prices were quite nice and included a camera + housing + printer and two dive suits.
