The jury has determined the winners of the LIFE Pinna photo contest, Life Among the Reef, 2023 edition. We received over three hundred images, many of which were of great value. Identifying the winners of this edition was therefore more challenging than ever. The evaluation criteria used included relevance to the contest theme (priority was given to species observable in the first meters of water), the ‘difficulty‘ of the documented scene (uncommon species and particular behaviors), and the quality of the submitted file.
Here is the podium, along with their respective motivations.
