Press release for Underwater Photo Competition English

New Scuba Diving Photo Contest in the Riviera Maya
1st Scuba Diving Photo Competition to include Ocean, Cavern and Cave Photography
August 15, 2009 Playa Del Carmen, Mexico The Riviera Maya Divers Alliance announced the first free entry recreational and technical Scuba Diving Photo Contest in Playa Del Carmen, Mexico during the week of December 5th to 12, 2009, which includes photos opportunities in the Yucatan Caves, Caverns and on the second largest barrier reef in the world, the Mesoamerican Reef.

“This new scuba photo contest is designed to celebrate the diversity of diving in the Riviera Maya, a diving location that has access to land and ocean diving. There is not another photo contest in the world that offers such a variety of diving and photo opportunities.” Stated the organizers David Tomlinson, Lothar Batt and Andreas W. MatthesMatt’ from the Riviera Maya Divers Alliance.

The Riviera Maya Underwater Photo Contest is an international annual scuba diving event designed to encourage and expand scuba divers underwater photography skills. Divers from around the world are invited to Playa del Carmen to participate in a memorable week-long experience that includes diving, social events and workshops that culminate in the presentation of winning photos and an awards ceremony. Local businesses and Scuba Diver suppliers are supporting this unique event with giveaways, information sessions and presentations as a means to promote this extraordinary opportunity that has never been done anywhere else in the world. International Judges will be selecting the winners of the contest on December 11th at the final ceremony and contest dinner.

The Riviera Maya, located south of Cancun and includes the Caribbean cities of Puerto Morelos, Playa Del Carmen and Tulum, is fortunate to have land dive sites in the underwater caves and caverns and ocean sites along the second largest barrier reef in the world, the Mesoamerican Reef, that stretches over 700 kms from Cancun to Honduras.

The Riviera Maya Divers Alliance is a network of dive centers that promote quality diving in the Riviera Maya through events and diving promotions in order to foster the Diving community. Abyss Dive Center, Tank Ha Dive Center and Protect Dive Center joined forces in May 2009 to execute this vision to divers internationally who are interested in recreational and technical diving.
