Your Own Photo on a Postage Stamp

from the July, 1998 issue of Undercurrent   Subscribe Now

How would you like your underwater photo gracing an official postage stamp? And your name as well?

Thats the coveted prize for eight winners in the 1998 Turks and Caicos underwater photo competition, which runs until November 15, 1998. The stamps of last years winners are already in circulation.

Moreover, the eight 1998 winners will share $10,000 in cash, and several will earn free one-week stays at Turks and Caicos hotels. All entrants, after paying the $35 entry fee, will get discounts on American Airlines and T&C hotels.

Of course, you must take your photos in Turks and Caicos waters sometime during the contest period, which began May 1 and continues through November 15. There are no contest restrictions as to camera, equipment, or film, although rules specify that contestants must operate from one of the landbased or live-aboard dive operations in the Turks and Caicos. Last year, 150 people entered, and this year only 225 are expected to take a shot.

You can get more information by calling or writing Ralph Higgs at the Turks and Caicos Tourist Board, Providenciales, Turks and Caicos Islands (649 946 4970 or fax 649 941 5494), or visit their web site at http://www.underwaterphoto.com.
