These Ocean Art Underwater Photo Competition Winners Are Extraordinarily Amazing
SPONSORED

Recently the winners of the 2016 Ocean Art Underwater Photo Competition were announced.

The competition itself is an annual, world-renowned contest that invites photographers from around the globe to enter their best underwater images.  The entrants then have a chance to win some amazing prizes, which this year amounted to over $75,000 worth in total.

Since there are many winners each year in various categories, I have decided to only share ten of these (which I deem to be the most stunning) with you.

If you would like to see all of the winning images, you can view these at 2016 Ocean Art Competition Winners
