For years, Club Nàutic de Sóller (Sóller Nautical Club) has been organising an underwater photography competition. Its aim is to bring to light the natural richness of the Balearic Sea and promote the impressive marine habitats of our coasts and the species that inhabit them. Participants can compete in two categories (Reflex and compact cameras) and present up to five photographs, with free subject matter. The jury evaluates skill, originality and spontaneity.
Marilles has covered the organisational expenses of the 11th competition, in which 30 divers took part, and which also aimed to raise awareness of the need for a new marine reserve on the North coast of Mallorca.
"Thanks to organisations like Marilles we can carry on fighting to achieve more protection in these magnificent islands."Rafel Solivellas President of Club Nàutic de Sóller
