Environmental Photo of the Year Winner (New!) – Massimo Zannini Our Future, Philippines

On April 17, we announced “The Noose – Carcharhinus Longimanus” by Nicholas Samaras as the winning entry for the “Environmental Photo of the Year” category in our Voice of the Ocean (VOO) Underwater Photography Competition.

However, upon the announcement of the results, it was brought to our attention that the winning entry had infringed one of the conditions of the competition (Clause No. 6: Images/videos/artworks that have won or placed in photo contests announced before 28 February 2019 may not be submitted) as it had previously been awarded first place in the Beneath the Sea Imaging Competition. After thorough investigation and careful deliberation, we have decided to disqualify the entry and vacate its first place position in favour of the First Runner-up entry, “Our Future”, by Massimo Zannini of the Philippines.

We hereby announce Massimo Zannini as the NEW WINNER of the “Environment Photo of the Year” category for his entry “Our Future”. Congratulations, Massimo, for winning the “Environment Photo of the Year” award!

However, we have been very impressed with the powerful message captured in “The Noose – Carcharhinus Longimanus” and have decided to award it the VOO Honourable Mention award. We would also like to congratulate the photographer for winning first place in the “Beneath the Sea” Imaging Competition, the results of which was announced on February 19, 2019.
