Time is running out to get your free instructor hat from PADI. Instructor applications must be turned in before 21 December, and redemption forms are due before the end of January 2008.
The hat (pictured left) is a Flexfit-style hat with the PADI logo on the front and “Digital U/W Photo Instructor” on the back. It’s free, just send in a redemption form with proof that you received the rating in 2007 (such as a copy of your specialty instructor card front and back).
Student divers who complete the Digital Underwater Photographer Specialty in 2007 are also eligible for a hat. PADI Diving Society membership is required, and they must show proof of purchase from a PADI Dive Center or Resort.
