For the fifth consecutive year Din l-Art Helwa is organizing a photographic competition for the marine environment in order to raise awareness about the importance and state of the coastline and surrounding waters of the Maltese islands. This initiative constitutes part of the Blue Campaign undertaken by the heritage and environmental organization and is open to all diving schools, clubs, students, lovers of the environment and the general public at large.
Awards will be presented to the winners of the two categories for photographic entries: one is for photographs capturing examples of the negative effects of human activity on the sea or the coastline for which underwater filming is not necessary. The second category is for photographs showing the beauty and unique qualities of underwater life.
