The Guylian Seahorses of the World photo competition is back! We’re pleased to announce that Guylian Belgian Chocolate, one of Project Seahorse’s key sponsors, and NELOS-Festival, are once again hosting the Guylian Seahorses of the World Photo Competition!

Send in your best seahorse pictures (by November 8th 2016 at midnight, CET) for your chance to win a Scubapro Chromis watch and 500 EURO and have your photos exhibited at Europe's best underwater video and photography festival.

Your submissions will be evaluated by a professional jury of underwater photographers and scientists. To find out more, visit the competition website.

Every entrant will receive a gift bag filled with Guylian Belgian chocolates worth 20 euros, to be collected at the Festival in CC De Grote Post, zaal Dactylo, Hendrik Serruyslaan 18A, Oostende on November 26, 2016. The competition winner will also be announced at this event. 

By entering the competition, not only do you get a chance to win great prizes, you provide Project Seahorse with valuable research material for scientific and educational projects! The final competition jury consists of an esteemed international panel of photographers and conservationists, who will judge all entries based on their artistic and scientific value.

Also, don't forget to join iSeahorse, Project Seahorse's 'citizen science’ initiative that uses your seahorse photos and sightings to improve seahorse science and conservation.

Please be extremely careful not to destroy or disturb in any way marine fauna and flora while photographing.
