Submissions must fall into one of three categories to qualify: ‘Below the Surface’, 'Coastal Wildlife', and 'Work or Play on the Ocean', with 3 prizes available per category. There will also be one uncategorized 'Seahuggers' Choice' prize (chozen by total 'likes' each photo gets in a album we'll post on our Facebook page), making a total of ten prizes to be awarded this year. 

Entries must be recent and must be located on near or under one of Canada’s three oceans.  Photographs will be judged on exposure, composition, uniqueness, creativity, technical proficiency and relevance to chosen theme. There is no limit to the number of entries that may be submitted.
