About us

This is the 10th year in a row that the Eilat Red Sea competition takes place in Eilat. Integrating elements from photography, high-tech, touristic and diving industries, the Eilat Red Sea event is branded as a worldwide leading underwater photography competition.


The Eilat Red Sea photo competition is distinguished by exceptional valuable prizes awarded to the winners, including huge cash prizes, diving vacations in dreamy destinations, underwater photo equipment, scuba gear and more. First prize for the main category is a $10,000 check!


The Eilat Red Sea event has been covered so far by many international media channels, such as CNN, Fashion TV and Reuters, as well as countless photo and diving magazines.


The man behind the scenes and the spirit of the Eilat Red Sea event is David Pilosof, an experienced underwater photographer was also the first photographer in the world to introduce the concept of underwater nudity and fashion images, which can be found on one of the most successful photography books ever published, Samantha.

Good News to Amateurs!


This year, there will be 3 categories open to amateur photographers using compact camera systems: Amateurs Wide Angle, Amateurs Macro and Amateurs - 3 Best Images

There will be no submission fee on the Amateurs - 3 Best Images category and a significantly discounted submission fee on the Wide Angle and Macro categories.

While these categories are open to amateurs only, prizes are super professional! 


Competition Spirit

In addition to diving, the Eilat Red Sea is much about celebrations. Daily Happy Hours each afternoon, a crazy Cyprus party together with the World ShootOut winning ceremony on Friday night and an extremely elegant, high tension Eilat Red Sea winning ceremony on Saturday night - all of these ensure that you end up not only wet, but extremely satisfied.


Good luck to you all!
