Have you got some top-quality nudibranch pictures? Enter them into DIVE's Big Shot photo competition for the chance to win a liveaboard trip to the Bahamas with Aggressor Adventures.

Nudibranchs are some of the best photographic subjects in the underwater world. Distributed globally with intricate, colourful patterns and appendages, they are the highlight of many dives and – unlike their fishy cousins –  don't disappear when faced with a lens. Every year, hundreds of thousands of nudibranch photos are taken, and if you think yours might be some of the best, then we'd like to see them in our latest Big Shot photo competition.

To enter the competition, tag up to ten of your best nudibranch images on Instagram, Facebook or Twitter with the hashtag #DIVEsBigShotNudibranchsplus you must make sure DIVE and Aggressor Adventures are tagged with the usernames as listed in competition rules – and fill out the Gleam module below. Take a look at the moderated gallery of entries at the foot of the article to get an idea of the standard of photography required.

The deadline for entries is midnight (GMT) on 31 January 2021. The competition will be judged by DIVE's publisher Graeme Gourlay, DIVE's World Editor Douglas David Seifert and long-standing DIVE contributor Steve Jones. The judges' favourites will be featured in our Spring 2021 magazine – available from March in both print and digital formats – and the overall winner of the competition will win a free place for one person for seven nights diving onboard the Bahamas Aggressor (flights not included).

We will request hi-res, 300dpi copies of any images we want to include in the final round of judging - please make sure you have these before entering.
