Our next Big Shot underwater photography competition starts now – send us your best shots from caves, caverns and overhangs for the chance to win an Aggressor Adventures liveaboard trip to Thailand


Our Big Shot underwater photo competition continues to be a great success, with some absolutely stunning photographs entered into previous iterations of the contest.

For the Summer 2024 issue of DIVE, we’re asking you to send us your best shots taken from the caves, caverns and overhangs of the underwater world. The best pictures will be printed in the magazine, with the overall winner rewarded with a seven-night trip to the Similans on board the Thailand Aggressor, (worth $3290) courtesy of Aggressor Adventures (flights not included).
