The 2013 Raja Ampat Entrance Tag Design Contest

The 2013 Wetpixel Raja Ampat Entrance Tag competition now has a winner.

Many congratulations to Nicholas Samaras of Greece who achieved the most votes in a very hotly contested result. His design will be worn on every diver’s BCD that visits Raja Ampat in 2013, and he can chose his prize of an all inclusive minimum 8 day trip to Raja Ampat with one of the contest’s sponsors.

The contest was extremely close this year with less than 300 few votes between the first three ranked tags. In fact, all the shortlisted entries proved very popular with the public vote. Many congratulations to all the entrants, and especially of course to Nicholas.

This years’ competition is now closed.
