About Us

This is the 6th year in a row that the World ShootOut global underwater photo competition takes place worldwide.


Introducing new categories and glorious prizes, we are proud to invite all divers, underwater photographers, diving centers, live aboards and media partners to take part in one of the most innovative, creative, international and festive events ever produced!


During January 1st to November 1st, 2016, the whole underwater world will be performing as a huge underwater festival, hosting young, amateur and professional photographers from all over the world, competing with each other for some very worthy prizes, including cash prizes, luxurious diving trips, diving equipment, photo gear and more.


Producer David Pilosof initiated the first World ShootOut competition in 2011, breaking all boundaries and introducing an international competition as never featured before.


Hundreds of photographers from numerous countries around the world take part in the World ShootOut competition and thousands of images are submitted, ranging from those that capture the calm lakes of the Nordic countries and Canada to others that showcase the exotic secrets hidden in Alaska and dramatic images of the great white shark in the Gulf of Mexico. 


Pilosof is also responsible for a variety of other impressive underwater photo productions, including the Eilat Red Sea competition, which is known by now as the international underwater photo Olympics.


Up until now, these competitions have awarded underwater photographers with over seven hundred thousand dollars of prizes!

World ShootOut 2016

The World ShootOut 2016 underwater photo competition consists of two main sections:

  1. Real-Time ShootOut
    A global real-time underwater photo shootout takes place during January 1st - November 1st, 2016.
    Photographers enjoy complete freedom of choosing their own diving destination and can take part in the competition by diving in any natural water resource found around the world, including seas, oceans, lakes, rivers, under the ice and more.
    This is a wonderful opportunity for you to either take a few days off for the sake of some diving in your local area, or to finally book the holiday you've been dreaming of in an exotic dive destination. Upon returning from your diving vacation, you're invited to submit your best images to the different real-time shootout categories and win some very worthy prizes, including a 3-week dreamy diving holiday for 2 people worth $20,000  in Papua New Guinea including 7 nights at the Tawali Resort, 7 nights at Tufi Resort, 10 nights on board MV FeBrina + PNG domestic flights 

    The Underwater Photography Global Championship invites photographers from the same country to team-up during January-November, 2016, and to put together a stunning, award-winning portfolio of 6 images. The winning team will be awarded with a $16,000 prize
    6,000 worth SEACAM products + $ 10,000 worth dive trip to Papua New Guinea at Walindi Plantation Resort and lissenung Island Resort.
