Dear underwater photo/video companies:

This year, products that you want to be covered by our Wetpixel DEMA report will require online submission. If you do not submit your products, they will not be covered in Wetpixel’s DEMA 2009 coverage.

2. Get on the industry mailing list to get future calls for submission

WETPIXEL COVERAGE HISTORY

Wetpixel has been covering underwater media products at DEMA since the year 2000. Each year, we have sent a small team of reporters to cover the DEMA show floor. Here is a link to our 2008 coverage:

During the first few years, we wandered around — carefree — because there were almost literally no digital photography products being announced. But last year, a team of three reporters were forced to buzz around the floor non-stop during the day, retiring to hotel rooms to write articles at night; I think we averaged around 2-3 hours of sleep per night, and by the end of the show, most people greeted me on the floor with a hearty, “WHOAH — what happened to you?!”

Anyway, the point of this post:
Products that you want to be covered by our Wetpixel DEMA report will require online submission.

Early submission will give our staff time to prepare reporting before DEMA so we can be timely and thorough about posting information about your company and your products.

CONFIDENTIALITY

All products submitted through this form will remain confidential under a media block until November 4, 2009.

HOW TO SUBMIT

Go to our DEMA product coverage submission form at http://wetpixel.com/i.php/demasubmit

  1. Fill out the form and submit it once for each product you are featuring or announcing at DEMA. Remember that this particular report will be DEMA-specific, and isn’t just a place to feature all of your products. We recommend 1-2 featured products, plus ALL new products.

  2. When you’re done submitting all of your products, zip/compress all of the images you’d like us to present into one file and send them to us at http://wetpixel.com/dropbox . Be sure to leave a comment in the notes field so we know what company the images belong to.

These directions are reproduced on the webpage.

DEADLINE

The deadline for submission to be included in DEMA 2009 coverage is October 16, 2009.

LIVE SHOW COVERAGE

The Wetpixel crew will still be on the DEMA show floor for live coverage. If you would like us to meet you at your booth, please get in touch with Michaela Brockstedt at .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) / +1-415-449-1456 to schedule an appointment.

INDUSTRY MAILING LIST

In the future, calls for product announcements for dive shows will be issued via our industry mailing list. To subscribe, please visit our mailing list page.
