The prizes remain fantastic. First prize winners in the video and still image categories and also the winners of the public vote for the best
image and film of SUBIOS 2005 win a trip to Seychelles for SUBIOS 2006 - including flights from any Air Seychelles gateway city, accommodation and diving. That’s FOUR diving trips to Seychelles to be won!
Video entries are limited to a maximum of 5 minutes long and can have been shot anywhere in the world.
And there is a combined category for the best still underwater image of the festival whether digital or slide.
