As the reigning champion I feel I best do my bit to promote this competition as much as I can. For those of you who are unaware I won this event last year, taking out the “Adrenalin” category and also the overall winner. I remember the exact location and what I was doing when I received the phone call from Ben Brain in the UK. My first thought I had when I received the phone call on congratulating me on my photo called “exit wave” which can be found in my portfolio, was “this has to be a friend of mine, pulling my leg and having ago at me”. Sitting down at one of the best Steak houses in Brisbane “the Morrison” with my family and friends, I walked outside to take the call. I was ecstatic hearing I was the overall winner and what I had won. Last year there was over 114,000 entries into this comp. By the looks of it there are even more entries into this competition this year..

Good luck to all of you who enter. If you want to see some of my gnarly photo’s that I have entered this year, follow the link to my page.

 

Now time for a little self promotion

 

One of my entries into this year’s competition is this shot called “A Sharks view” Yes I know it’s a little cheesy but I didn’t have much time to think of a good artistic name. This was taken at Duranbah beach on the Gold Coast. I love the way the sun rays come through the surface and separate each beam, the way the wave has broken and how the ripples on the top left corner have formed. This is by far one of my favourite underwater shots I have taken this year.
