The first Nudibranch Photo Competition, sponsored by Nauticam UK was held this year. Focusing on the tiny critters proved popular, with more than 1,000 entries from divers around the world. 

This image by Mark Webster won first place in the UK category of the competition. The species Favorinus branchialis lays its eggs within a coil of eggs of a larger species. The species is not often found in UK waters with this colouration, being more typical of the Mediterranean. The photo was taken in Falmouth Bay, Cornwall.
