For the second year, the Ocean Project organised a contest of the most beautiful picture in favor of the oceans and we do have the great pleasure to see our picture winning the competition.
The picture was announced and displayed during the reception at United Nations Headquarters in New York City. Later this year, the winning photos will be shown at the World Underwater Imagery Festival in Marseille, France, and may also be as part of a traveling exhibit. The winning photos will be uploaded soon to the Ocean Project website.
