This year the celebrity panel of judges included Alex Mustard, Berkley White, Brian Skerry, Keri Willk and Matt Weiss. They went through thousands of images taken by novice to professional photographers from around the world. Winners were announced live on stage during the Our World Underwater film festival in Chicago (February 17 & 18, 2012), and will be published by supporting media partners worldwide.”
