Dear Friends of the Ocean,
The Colorado Underwater Photographic Society is inviting you to join us at 2012 MAKING WAVES produced by the Colorado Ocean Coalition (COCO). This will be a weekend of events in Boulder, CO, October 20 – 21, 2012.
The weekend features luminaries Jean-Michel Cousteau and Dr. Sylvia Earle, and the best of The SF Ocean film festival, educational symposium, and gala fundraiser -- all with the goal to unite, educate and inspire Coloradans to protect our oceans. The event is brought to you with the sponsorship of the Colorado Scuba Retailers Association (CSRA) and the support of the Colorado Underwater Photographic Society (CUPS). Participation at MAKING WAVES offers you a high level of exposure to share your images with members of Colorado’s globally renowned and active diving community.
CUPS is producing a photo contest and exhibit for the event of MAKING WAVES you must go to www.cupsonline.net to participate. Online up-load deadline Sept 19th.This will be the most prestigious U/W photo competition ever held in Colorado!
We are in the process of trying to acquire prizes for the contest presently.
* Prizes for category winners in the CUPS underwater photography competition (winners will be announced at Making Waves)
* Product manufacturers will hopefully distribute prizes through a local CSRA retailer.
Following on the resounding success of last year’s inaugural MAKING WAVES, which drew capacity crowds (over 600 for the symposium) and received rave reviews, we will be at larger venues this year and anticipate even greater attendance by offering additional speakers, features and activities. See the EVENT HIGHLIGHTS and SCHEDULE page.
Thank you in advance for your support by participating in MAKING WAVES, and sharing your images with the diving and environmental community in Colorado, and in protecting the feature that makes our planet unique and that we all need to survive – the ocean.
