Annual Holiday Party

Our Annual Holiday Party is our favorite event of the year and we want to see all our favorite people there!

We truly believe you are part of our Denver Divers & The Swim School of Denver Family and want to show you how much we truly appreciate having you in our family.

Chef extraordinaire, Brian Hubner, will be delighting us with many tasty bites throughout the night and we will also have the cookie table filled to the brim. Drinks will be flowing and our annual End-of-Year Photo Show will be playing on all the TV's throughout the shop! That night Training Director, Wendel Benjamin, will announce our Master Diver Challenge winner, too!

ANNUAL PEOPLE'S CHOICE PHOTO CONTEST

Entry Deadline: Ongoing
Judging Dates: November 24 - December 31, 2018
Winners Announced: January 4, 2019

Photo Contest

Calling all photographers! We would like to invite you to participate in our Annual People's Choice Photo Contest. Because, what would our life experiences while diving be if we did not share them with our fellow divers and friends? If you have a stunning photo from one of your amazing scuba trips, it is your scuba duty to enter it in our contest! That way, you can inspire others to share their experiences through photos, and brag about how you won the Denver Divers photo contest!

Entry into the contest is free. All you need to do is bring in your 8x10 photo and we will mat it and put it up in the shop for display. Customers will have two months to vote from November 5 through December 31, 2018. We will announce the winners in the January 2019 newsletter.

Winning photos will be added to the revolving show on our website and will be printed on canvas and hung on the walls at Denver Divers.

Entry Instructions:
(up to five entries per person)

  1. Pick a category for your photo: Topside, Macro, Wide Angel, Marine Life, and/or Humor.
  2. Print your 8x10 photo on photo-quality paper with no border.
  3. Bring in your photo by November 1 with your name, category, and photo title and location taken written on the back of the photo. Don't worry, late entries are gladly accepted, but the sooner you give us your photo, the more potential it has to gain votes!
  4. Come in and vote between November 23 and December 31, 2018, and to see your photo displayed alongside the competition.

Winners will be announced following the Annual Holiday Party, and prizes will be awarded in each category as well as an overall prize for best photo.

Please drop your photos off at Denver Divers and we will mount them for display starting November 5.
