With the mastery of local Coffs Harbour small business Coast Studios, we have been working very hard on the brand new look After bringing in our brand new boat into the picture July 2021, we wanted to ensure the online experience of Jetty Dive matched up to “mega” standards. And to celebrate, we want to give you the opportunity to win big by entering Jetty Dive’s Mega-May photo competition.

Something we always want more of is spectacular imagery and video of the beautiful marine life at the Soiltary Islands.

More importantly – we have a few holes in our underwater photograph archives that we want to fill… and that’s where you come in.

What do you mean by “quality”?

Great question! Photography can be subjective, and final judging is up to Jetty Dive Centre – but there is a few things that we will be looking for.

  • Think publication quality. We will be using these images on our website and through promotion. Take a look through our website to get an idea of what quality of image is our standard. Pages like this, and this are great examples.
  • The photo must be clear. It needs to be focused on the main subject of the picture. Because we’re talking about images featuring multiple subjects, this can be a little tricky. But we basically need the image to be in focus. If you’ve snapped a killer shot of 10 sharks, but 2 of them are further in the background and not suuuper clear – that’s okay. But if you’ve got a picture of a leopard shark and a grey nurse, but the image is focused on the gorgeous rocks to the right, that is not what we define as quality.
  • The image must have appropriate exposure. Not too dark, not too bright.
  • The image should not be over edited. ie. colour corrected.
  • They must be of real animals, underwater, on a dive with us.
  • No watermarks, please.

How do I enter?
