2013 Cairns Underwater Film Festival!

2013 CairnsUnderwaterFilmFestival-32The 2013 Cairns Underwater Film Festival held on August 24th at the Civic Centre was again, a huge success! With more than 750 photo and film enteries from talented photographers around the world all vying for over $50,000 in prizes, the images and films all showcased the beauty and diversity of our ocean environment.

But the big winners for the evening were the three charities who shared the $20,000 worth of donations that the festival raised! Tangaroa Blue Foundation, The Cairns Turtle Rehab Centre and the Minke Whale Research Project all work hard to protect our oceans and marine life, and were all thrilled at the support from everyone who attended the event, and the organisers and supporters, who once again put on a great evening!
