Photo contest goes under the sea

Each spring since 2005, the University of Miami’s Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science has hosted an underwater photography contest open to amateur photographers.

The winners are announced at one of the school’s Sea Secrets lectures and are displayed in a traveling exhibit throughout the South Florida community.

The school, which began as a small marine biology and fisheries laboratory in 1943, has grown to become one of the world’s premier oceanographic research and education institutions.
