The World Open of Photography

We’re delighted to announce a new sponsor of Club Of The Waves: The World Open of Photography.

The Open is an international photography competition with a prize purse of $50,000! It is open to all photographers, and we’d like to specifically draw your attention to their Action & Lifestyle category, which of course is perfect for surf photographers! You can vote on your favourite photos and photographers. So we encourage you to visit their website and have a good look through their photo archives!

We’ll be blogging COTW featured surf photographers’ submissions (of which there are dozens!) over the coming weeks/months, so watch this space!
