This year they have made some category changes.
Mirrorless camera technology advanced at lightspeed in 2018 and many new mirrorless camera systems are as good or better than DSLR’s. Therefore, they have merged the mirrorless categories into the “open” categories. This allowed for them to introduce four new and very promising categories – Novice Wide-Angle, Novice Macro, Blackwater, and Underwater Conservation. The judges can’t wait to see what our amazing community of underwater photographers produces!
