Layang Layang Island Resort Malaysia

The Layang Layang Underwater Digital Photo Shoot 2007 will be held in Malaysia on July 17-23, 2007.

Participants are invited to join the challenge to photograph the reef ecosystem of Layang Layang, a 14-square kilometer circular coral atoll 300 km. off the coast of Sabah, Malaysia. It is home to one of the most diverse groups of marine life, from schooling hammerheads, barracuda, and fusiliers to nudibranchs, flatworms, and crustaceans.

Winners of the photo contest will win prizes worth $30,000 from sponsors like Nautica, Nikon, Oceanic, as well as dive trips to exotic locations. All winning participants will have their pictures published in the Asian Diver magazine.

Also invited to judge the competition are renowned underwater photographers such as Junji Takasago, Stephen Wong, Dr. Kurt Svrcula, and Mike Veitch.
