For our Dives with a Difference contest, we’re looking for dive sites which are out of the normal scuba box – the places we don’t always dive every day, locations that need special training to access, or simply those which are one-of-a-kind in the world. Dive sites such as…
- Missile silos and bunkers
- Underground caves, the cenotes and other sinkholes
- Diving under the ice
- Sculpture parks, memorials and hotels below the surface
- Craters, volcanos and altitude dives in the mountains
- Underwater forests, parks and ruins
- …surprise us with your most unusual diving destination!
If you regularly dive, teach, or run your PADI business from one of the world’s more unusual diving locations, submit a photo or video of your most extraordinary dive. Or promote this contest to your students and ask them to submit photos or videos for the chance to win one of three cool prizes.
How to Enter
Enter your details on the PADI Facebook Page Contest Tab and upload either your photo or video along with a short description of your dive site and what makes it unusual. Entries must be submitted before 11.59pm UTC on 16 June 2015.
PADI staff will shortlist 10 finalists after the entry period closes. These 10 finalists will be listed on the contest page for public vote between 19-26 June 2015. The three entries with the highest number of votes will be chosen as 1st, 2nd and 3rd Place Winners.
The Winner (1st Place) will get a GoPro video package which includes: One Hero4 Silver camera kit, 2X filters, 1 dive housing and 1 camera tripod.
Two runner up winners (2nd Place and 3rd Place) will each win a Quik Pod DSLR/POV Ultra selfie stick, a Quik Pod Floating Lanyard and a PADI Prize Pack/Swag bag.
Good luck to you and your students!
