ABYSS 2019
International Underwater Photography Contest

The exhibition of the International Underwater Photography Competition ABISSI – “City of Venice” was held at the Natural History Museum of Venice from 05 to 27 October 2019. By now in its twelfth edition and in honor of the Museum of Natural History, the Competition was dedicated exclusively to biological photographs, related to the reality of life that takes place in the underwater world. Therefore images containing human beings, wrecks and especially depicting subjects that we would never find associated with each other were not allowed. Even the images of beings displaced from their habitat to be forced to act as “models” only for the purpose of producing effective photographs, false and uneducative photographs, and contrary to the ethics of naturalistic photography, were not present.

As always, the event was hosted by the Museum of Natural History of Venice and the photographic material collected will enrich the Archive of the Natural History Museum of Venice which will use it for research and educational purposes. 

The photo competition is developed in the following categories:

MEDITERRANEAN OTHER SEAS – TROPICAL REFLEX / MIRRORLESS

MEDITERRANEAN OTHER SEAS – TROPICAL COMPACT

LIVING IN THE TRASH (FT) LIVING IN THE BRUSH

FRESH WATERS (FRE) SWEET WATERS

BLACK WATERS (BW)

The award ceremony took place on Saturday October 26th 2019. The first 3 of each category and the honorable mentions were awarded. As usual, the public also voted for the favorite photo among those shown through the museum’s facebook page.

VéVé Glass, historical partner of the event, represented by the glass master Stefano and Andrea Birello, has awarded the winners of two categories. Congratulations!
