We won a bronze medal for our wide-angle with diver image in the CMAS Underwater Photography World Championship 2017 in La Paz, Mexico!

One more picture made it to the top 10 in the theme category. This years theme was «sea lions» which La Paz is famous for. The championship gathered 35 photographers from 19 nations.

The Norwegian Diving Federation (NDF) selected us to represent Norway based on our performance in recent Norwegian Championships.

A big thanks to Dykkebazaar and Lufthansa for supporting our trip.

The world championship is a splash-in competition with no editing of the images allowed. JPG files straight from the camera are submitted to the jury.
