We are super excited to announce that the Underwater Film Festival is coming to the University of Exeter, Penryn Campus! To celebrate here at ExeterMarine, we have decided to launch a photography competition!

On Friday 22nd November, together with Fourth Element, Falmouth University and the University of Exeter, we will host the Underwater Film Festival at the Penryn Campus. Doors open from 7.30pm. So clear your diaries and come and spend an evening with us delving in to the wonderful underwater world with some awe inspiring films. Be swept away, be inspired by the stories told, and be immersed in a world beneath the surface. Featuring films from greats such as Kelvin Murray, Shark Bay Films, Behind the Mask and Howard Hall as well as shorts made by students and recent graduates of both the University of Exeter and Falmouth University, it surely a night not to be missed! You can grab your tickets here, tickets start at just £5!

We will also be announcing the winners of our photography competition at the event! Prizes kindly donated by Fourth Element are as follows:

1st Place: £250 Fourth Element Voucher
1st Runner Up: £100 Fourth Element Voucher
2nd Runner Up: £50 Fourth Element Voucher

The competition is open to everyone to showcase the wonderful coastal and marine worlds here in Cornwall and Devon, but be quick! You only have 2 weeks to send us your submissions as applications will close at 23:59 on Sunday 17th November.  We are looking for images that showcase the beautiful maritime landscapes, wonderful marine wildlife, awesome underwater worlds and the diverse people that depend on the coastal and marine world in Cornwall and Devon. Everyone is welcome to submit up to two photographs to the competition. We will showcase all entries on the ExeterMarine Twitter, Facebook and Instagram feeds and all entries will be shown at the Underwater Film Festival on Friday 22nd November.
