PADI 50th Anniversary Contest with Prizes from Aqua Lung, GoPro, Suunto and Vivid-Pix

50th_socialcontest_1024x512_v3

2016 marks PADI’s 50th Anniversary, and to help us celebrate this landmark event we’re calling on PADI Professionals and divers to share their favourite diving moments from the last 50 years.

Enter a photo, video or story today and you could win one of these incredible prizes: an Aqua Lung CORE Regulator, a GoPro HERO4 package, a Suunto D4i Novo Dive Computer, Vivid-Pix photo editing software or a PADI eLearning Gift Pass/Gift Bag.

The contest is open now and will close for entries on 10th July 2016 (23:59 UTC). Winners will be announced on 25th July 2016. Please visit the contest page for full terms and conditions.

Why not share…

  • An incredible marine life encounter
  • A memorable experience with your scuba students
  • How and why you became a PADI Pro

Make sure you get your customers and student divers involved, too! They can share their top underwater memories or simply tell us what being a PADI diver means to them.

Top tip: Why not offer some themed events (like local marine life spotting or photography days) to help your students experience and capture some incredible moments under the surface. Make it easy for everyone to enter the contest by setting up a computer and connection for them to make use of e the post-dive briefings.

New Contest – Dives with a Difference

0507 Dives With a Difference FB Header

For our Dives with a Difference contest, we’re looking for dive sites which are out of the normal scuba box – the places we don’t always dive every day, locations that need specialist training to access, or simply those which are a one-of-its-kind in the world. Dive sites such as…

  • Missile silos and bunkers
  • Underground caves, the cenotes and other sinkholes
  • Diving under the ice
  • Sculpture parks, memorials and hotels below the surface
  • Craters, volcanos and altitude dives in the mountains
  • Underwater forests, parks and ruins
  • …surprise us with your most unusual diving destination!

If you regularly dive, teach, or run your PADI business from one of the world’s more unusual diving locations, submit a photo or video of your most extraordinary dive and you could win one of three cool prizes!

How to Enter

Enter your details on the PADI Facebook Page Contest Tab and upload either your photo or video along with a short description of your dive and what makes it unusual. Entries must be submitted before 11.59pm UTC on 16 June 2015.

Selection Process

PADI staff will shortlist 10 finalists after the entry period closes. These 10 finalists will be listed on the contest page for public vote between 19th-26th June 2015. The three entries with the highest number of votes will be chosen as 1st, 2nd and 3rd Place Winners.

The Prizes

The Winner (1st Place) will get a GoPro video package which includes: One Hero4 Silver camera kit, 2X filters, 1 dive housing and 1 camera tripod.

Two runner up winners (2nd Place and 3rd Place) will each win a Quik Pod DSLR/POV Ultra selfie stick, a Quik Pod Floating Lanyard and a PADI Prize Pack/Swag bag.
