Cairns Underwater Film Festival, August 24, 2013

Reef lovers are about to get their annual fill of eye candy. The seventh annual Cairns Underwater Film Festival gets underway in a few short weeks. Not only is the world treated to some of the world's most beautiful coral reef photography and short films but all proceeds from this non-profit event goes towards conservation and scientific research.

A small sampling of past CUFF winners.


Cairns Underwater Film Festival is a celebration of underwater photography and filmmaking. The festival combines an underwater film and photo competition (which focuses on the rich and diverse beauty of the Great Barrier Reef and Coral Sea) with a film festival showcasing underwater imagery from around the world.

Every year, contestants have presented amazing photography at the festival, and we expect this year to take coral reef imagery to new heights.  If the official trailer for the event is any indication, our collective jaws are about to drop again really soon.  We'll follow up in a few weeks to share some of the winning work.
