The Shootout Returns in June 2018

It's back and it is serious.




During the 2016 Lembeh vs. Gulen Shootout, two teams of photographers battled to decide which would be champion. After an intense battle and by a narrow margin, Lembeh eventually proved victorious.



Round two will commence in 2018. Two teams of photographers will again gather June 15-23, 2018, at Gulen Diver Resort, Norway, and Lembeh Resort, Indonesia, to compete for individual and team glory. Guided and mentored by professional and acclaimed underwater photographers, the teams will strive to produce amazing imagery in a series of categories.

The quality of images the teams produced in 2016 under contest conditions is a true tribute to their abilities. The 2018 Shootout will provide the same challenges and opportunities for all photographers to show their mettle. Join a team, and help decide which will be the winner!
