2018 NUPG Annual Splash-In Competition Results

On Saturday 4th August 2018 the Northern Underwater Photography Group held their annual “Splash-In” underwater photography competition in North Wales. Underwater photographers were invited to take pictures on the day, to be entered into two primary categories, then displayed at that evening’s meeting in Bangor and voted on by those present.

Conditions – for some participants, at least – were good and the entries were dominated by newcomers to UWP competitions. Glynn Phillips won the Wide Angle category with his backlit jellyfish and also the Newcomer category with his close-up shot of a skeleton shrimp. However Yo-Han Cha’s feeding nudibranch won the Close-Up category and was voted the overall winner.
