We’re looking for a great photo to be featured as the 2015 PADI Diving Society membership card. The winner will get a certificate, a shout-out on the PADI Facebook Page and their image shared with more than 175,000 PADI Diving Society members worldwide (and over 1 million Facebook Fans).

How  you can get involved:

Send us your best photos to take part, and more importantly, get your customers involved by sharing the contest details on your website, social channels and newsletters. Use this mobile-friendly URL – https://a.pgtb.me/jzHMTg

Top Tip: Why not run a special PADI Digital Underwater Photographer course to inspire divers to improve their camera skills and potentially snap the winning shot!

How to Enter:

Visit the PADI Facebook Page contest tab – the contest opens for entries on the 26th August 2014 (00:00 UTC).

Choosing a Winner:

PADI Staff will narrow down all entries to a handful of finalists after the first stage has finished on 14th September.

PADI Facebook Fans will then be able to vote for the final winner between 17-26th September. The final winner will be announced on/around 6th October 2014.
