Summer is not yet over in the Mediterranean, where divers enjoyed the second hottest summer ever recorded (some marine life was not equally happy, though).
Records and pictures of nursehound eggs have been pouring in, and as we’re busy preparing a preliminary report of our project for the European Elasmobranch Association meeting (to be held in Milan in November, more on this later), we’re happy to announce our partnership with the well-known Venice International Underwater Photo Constest “Città di Venezia”.
The contest is held with the cooperation of the Natural History Museum of Venice and has a strong focus on exactely our subjects: topics include “sharks” and “reproduction”, and we’ve just agreed with the organizers to present a special prize to the most beautiful picture of a mermaid’s purse.
So if you have taken a nice picture of a nursehound, submit your pix!
Deadline is October 3rd (more or less…) but as you can submit your images by email it only takes a click. More info on the contest website and here is the direct link to the rules.
Look forward to seeing your pictures!
