We are very proud to be the world’s first dive log app to support video uploading. Only with the Deepblu App can you create interactive dive logs that allow you and your friends to truly relive your dives.

Many of our users have taken advantage of our video function by including some really incredible underwater videos in their dive logs.

While the video function was first rolled out to iOS users, Android users will now be able to join the fun after our latest, completely free update.

To celebrate the launch of the video function on Android, we’re holding a second month-long Deepblu Underwater Video Contest.

The three videos with the most likes at the end of the week will be nominated. Our VIP guest judges will select one winning video from three nominated videos. Since this competition is all about sharing, we’ll be sharing the love by sending each of the first prize winners a brand new COSMIQ Dive Computer.

HOW IT WORKS

1. Download the Deepblu App and sign up for a Deepblu account.

 

2. Create a new dive log and make sure to upload your scuba video, too.

 

3. Deepblu’s Community Team will select videos to post on the Deepblu Discover Wall.

 

4. Videos are nominated based on the accumulated amount of likes. So make sure you get all your buddies to download the Deepblu App and “like” your video by pressing the heart icon below your dive log to increase your chance of winning.

 

5. Our guest judges will select one winner from the three video dive logs with the most likes each week.

 

6. The three weekly nominees will be announced on Fridays at 6pm (GMT+8). Winners will be announced the following Monday.

 

7. The Best Underwater Video for each week will be featured on our Facebook page (www.facebook.com/deepbluinc) and the winner recieves a brand new COSMIQ Dive Computer.

1. Videos must be a minimum length of 15 seconds.

2. Videos must be scuba diving- or freediving-related.

3. Videos must be clear and of a good quality.

TIPS FOR INCREASING YOUR CHANCES OF WINNING:

3. Filter and sort dive logs on the Discover Wall so you can see all video dive logs in one place.

 

4. Edit your video footage to enhance the quality of your video.

 

5. Add music! Here’s a great source of royalty-free songs you can use: tubularinsights.com/free-royalty-free-music/
