Underwater Photographer of the Year 2024

Feb 17, 2024 | 0 comments

The results of the “Underwater Photographer of the Year 2024” competition have been announced, and as every year, this year’s award-winning photos left us speechless.

The Grand Winner is the Swedish photographer Alex Dawson with a photo capturing a diver descending next to the skeleton of a whale.

Here is the photographer’s description

In eastern Greenland the local hunters bring their catch and share it among each other. From a stable population of over 100,000 minke whales in the North Atlantic the hunters of Tasiilaq typically take less than a dozen. The whale is pulled up on the beach during high tide and many families gather to cut the skin, blubber and the meat off at low tide. Almost all the whale is consumed, however the skeleton is pulled back into the sea by the next high tide and the remains can be found in shallow waters where various marine invertebrates and fish pick the bones clean.
