Motion Of The Ocean

Deepblu Underwater Video Contest

Motion Of The Ocean

Since our last Underwater Video Contest, we’ve received over a thousand beautiful, funny, interesting, moving underwater videos from users. Now the contest is back and more powerful than ever! Share your underwater videos with us and win a COSMIQ+!

THEME: MOTION OF THE OCEAN

The ocean is all about motion. Inside its rocking embrace, a myriad of currents fuel perpetual bobbing, swinging, gliding and zipping. The observer too is part of this hypnotizing circus, adding another dimension to it all. Deepblu is now looking for the underwater videographers and diver-artists who can capture this notion of motion. Focus on creatures, people or even the abstract concept of motion… Be creative—anything is possible!
