EPIC (Environmentally aware Photographic Image Competition) was the first underwater photo/video competition dedicated to the preservation of the marine environment by rewarding environmental awareness of the underwater world. EPIC proceeds are donated to the Marjorie L. Bank Scholarship, which sponsors an intern to pursue studies in environmental marine program. This scholarship is awarded yearly through the Our World Underwater Scholarship Society in Chicago, Il.
The deadline for entries is January 15th, 2004. There are two underwater digital categories, the newest being “Sharks”. The winner in this category will be awarded a fantastic dive trip courtesy of Shark Diver Magazine. Please visit EPIC at www.epicphotocontest.org for all the details.
