Underwater Photographer of the Year 2019

Most of planet Earth is covered by water, so it's surprising there aren't more underwater photos. Each year, there's a competition to select the best underwater photographer and photos, and the winners are incredible.

The website for Underwater Photographer of the Year has a full gallery of 125 winning photos, as well as tips on how you can enter the competition for 2020.
