Welcome to the Project AWARE Global Underwater Scavenger Hunt!

The Hunt is On!

We've had a great time playing the Scavenger Hunt with you! This contest is now closed and we've announced the winners -- click here to read about who won the contest. And please keep Diving Against Debris!

Here’s how the contest works:

Until August 1st 2011, every piece of underwater marine debris you collect and log in Project AWARE’s Dive Against Debris database will count towards your Scavenger Hunt total.

The diver who logs the most marine debris by August 1st wins the ultimate Scubapro Diver Duffle Bag packed with fins, mask, snorkel, boots and gloves from Scubapro's new SUB GEAR range valued at $420 plus Project AWARE goodie bag.

Second place scavenger will win the latest IC14 Intova Digital Camera with Waterproof housing plus Project AWARE goodie bag and third place scavenger hunters will receive a Project AWARE goodie bag including a mask strap, BCD clip, polo shirt and more.

Contest Small Print: All Scavenger Hunt items must be photographed and logged in Project AWARE’s Dive for Debris database; manually produced or hard copy forms will not be eligible. For items to count towards your Scavenger Hunt total, they must already exist as an item in the AWARE database. The winner will have collected the most number of debris items over an eight-week period, as tabulated in the Dive Against Debris database. The leaderboard does not display results in real time. It will be updated twice a week during the eight-week contest. The winners will be notified by email on August 2, 2011 and then announced on Project AWARE’s website on August 7, 2001. The prizes must be accepted as awarded, cannot be traded in for cash, cannot be transferred, substituted or redeemed. All decisions of the judges regarding all aspects of this contest are final.
