This year we have changed our categories to better represent our SoMAS diversity and increase the representation of our three divisions. The Photo Competition will be divided into four categories with a single winner in each category:
Marine: Any photos taken while performing research associated with the SoMAS Division of Marine Science or related to Marine science
Atmospheric: Any photos taken while performing research associated with the SoMAS Division of Atmospheric Science or related to Atmospheric Science.
Sustainability: Any photos taken while performing research associated with the SoMAS Division of Sustainability or related to Sustainability Science.
SoMAS spirit: Freestyle photos. Anything that embodies the spirit of SoMAS will be eligible under this category. It can include photos of SoMAS events, SoMAS personnel, campus/equipment, marine fauna/flora, seascapes, sunsets on the ocean…your choice!
