Welcome to the 5th DUC Shootout!
The DUC Shootout 2015 Video & Photography Competition aims to create a forum where underwater video and still photographers can compete against one another and at the same time, expose their favourite dive sites – and even explore new ones! The images need to be captured between Mozambique and Cape Town and must be taken in the set out shooting period.
We are so proud to achieve this mile stone that in order to celebrate, we have decided to extend the shooting period to FIVE months. The shooting period will open on the 1st of December 2014 and close on the 3rd of May 2015. (5 months!)
This year we are going to encourage shooters to enter and pay BEFORE the 1st of April 2015. In order to do this we are going to charge a late entry fee to any entries and payments received after the 1st of April 2015.
(When we refer to Entries, we mean going in on the website and entering the competition and then paying.)
The rules and general format of the competition will remain the same as previous years – if this is your first time entering the competition be sure to check out the rules.
The overall quality and originality of the stills and videos have improved year on year, positioning the DUC Shootout as one of the top underwater photography competitions in South Africa and the premier underwater photography event of the future.
We look forward to this year’s submissions given the extended shooting period!
