Third underwater photography exhibition by Michael ZaimovJune 24, 2010 - 10:46 am
The event would feature Michael's works from the past couple of years

Our friend and DomePort member Michel Zaimov is preparing his third underwater photography exhibition. The exhibition would feature photos taken during the last couple of years in the Pacific and Indian Oceans, the Red, Black and Mediterranean seas. Unlike the previous exhibitions, in this one the author is attempting to seek a more abstract expression with accent on the matter and form.
The exhibition will be opened for visitors on July 5th (at 19:00h) at the Museum Gallery for Modern Arts in Sofia, Bulgaria. The event will be presented by the major Bulgarian artist Gredi Assa. The visitors will be able to enjoy Michael's work by July 12.

All photography fans and friends of the Underwater World are invited.

Suunto Dive-off 2010: Who will be the deepest man on Earth?March 19, 2010 - 11:09 am
The world??ôs best freedivers will battle for the title in April at Dean's Blue Hole

This year Vertical Blue will inaugurate the very first edition of the Suunto Dive-off, a contest to confirm who is the best all-round freediver in the world. VB2010 will host the strongest lineup of male freedivers that have ever participated in an event. Herbert Nitsch, Martin Stepanek and William Trubridge are the only athletes to have set depth world records since 2008, and VB 2010 will be the first occasion that all three are competing in the same event. Hot on their heels are a group of formidable athletes who are all either ex-world record holders or national champions, including Guillaume Nery, Ryuzo Shinomiya, Dave Mullins, William Winram, Walter Steyn and Robert King.

The clash features three disciplines, (CNF, FIM and CWT) and an athlete can earn up to 100 points, depending on the ratio of their best performance compared to the best dive in the event. Each discipline has the same weighting, and the freediver with the best aggregate (out of a possible total of 300) wins the Suunto Dive-off and is crowned the best all-round freediver of the year.

Sixteen athletes from 10 nations will compete.
