BTS/Beneath the Sea 2005 Contest Winners
The Beneath the Sea 2005 contest winners have been posted! The winning photos are spectacular, and as usual, many Wetpixelians are represented.
BTS 2005 is coming up this March 18-20, 2005 in New York, just outside of Manhattan. I won’t be able to go this year, but hopefully one of our members will take a bunch of photos and send them to us!

Wetpixel POTW Contest
Hello, guys. A quick reminder: the POTW contest still exists! The new format will allow us to eventually switch to a picture of the day format, instead of only allowing for pictures of the week. Ideally, we’ll run the contest like they do over at Steve’s Digicams, with monthly voting from POTD winners.
Please check out the new POTW page to see how to enter. For now, we have no themes, but we’ll figure out how to get them in the contest in the future!
Digital Shootout Bonaire 2005
UPDATE: June 5, 2005 - Spots still available! Airline tickets may be difficult to acquire at this point, but please try, if you are interested. :)
Hone your underwater digital photography skills and join Eric Cheng in Bonaire this July for the annual digital shootout! Last year we had a great time out in Fiji. This year, I’ll be lecturing on image management and sharing photos both electronically and in print. Other presenters include Jim Watt, Berkley White, and Dan Baldocchi.

New Wetpixel Design!
Welcome to the new Wetpixel.com! Over the past few years, Wetpixel has grown from a basic news listing site into the premier online resource for underwater digital photography. Our community of registered members is over 3,000 strong, and we have many times that number in regular, anonymous visitors.
The new design is based on an advanced, multi-blog engine, which will allow us to participate more in the main content areas of the site. More importantly, it is now very easy to browse back in time through our archives. Wetpixel even has RSS and Atom feeds now, so you don’t have to manually check our front page to look for new content.
