The 2017 Marine Wildlife and Seascapes Photo Contest is underway, and we are amazed at the quality of this year’s submissions. From frolicking sea lions to stunning sunsets, the photos this year are better than ever.

You still have time to enter! Submissions end Sunday, July 9, at midnight EDT. This year we have five categories: Seascapes, Human Impact, Underwater Scenes, Wildlife and Humor.

Winners will receive exciting prizes from B&H Photo, Outerknown, Picaboo, Rockflowerpaper and more. And everyone who enters has a chance to have their photo in the Ocean Conservancy’s 2018 calendar, and featured on our Twitter, Facebook and Instagram pages!

For now, here are 11 fin-tastic photos that have already been submitted. Will yours be the one that catches the judges’ eyes?
