Discover the Deep

Discover the Deep

Join Our Underwater Photo Contest

To celebrate publication of Discovering the Deep, a sumptuously illustrated guide to the seafloor and ocean crust, we are inviting you to share your best photographs of marine geologic features, hot springs, and marine life for our Photography Competition.


Unlike the authors of this book you may not have access to high-tech, deep-sea technology, so your images may contain marine rocks or animals, in the sea or exposed on land. 

So send us your fabulous field photos for the chance to win a copy of this magnificent atlas and take an armchair dive into the abyss. We are eager to see your submissions!

Guidelines for submissions

Contestants can submit up to 3 images. Images should be in jpeg or tiff format. Please include your name, an explanatory caption (up to 50 words) and details of equipment/software used.

Deadline for submissions is Friday, May 15, 2015 extended to 30th June 2015!

Send submissions to Rachel Ewen at  rewen@cambridge.org

By submitting your photos, you grant permission for them to be posted on the Cambridge University Press blog, Facebook, and Pinterest pages.

The winner will be contacted by email after the competition closes.


The winner will receive a copy of Discovering the Deep: A Photographic Atlas of the Sea-Floor Atlas  and Ocean Crust. Each of the first two runners up will also receive a special prize.

We look forward to your entries!
