Nov. 15-20, 2011 - Cozumel "Shootout" Photo Contest 2011
The Cozumel Photo Shootout will take place this year November 15 - 20, 2011. This an event that seeks to promote the natural beauty of Cozumel island
through an symposium of photographers. The event will also serve to create
awareness amongst the local population and visitors about the urgency to take action to stop environmental deterioration and to move towards truly sustainable development.
The island of Cozumel is recognized globally for its coral reefs rich in biodiversity and truly spectacular beauty. But the island also has land eco-systems of great esthetic and
biological value. For this reason, the annual "Shootout", a contest that previously featured only underwater photography, has been revamped to now include photography of land-based eco-systems as well.
The Cozumel Photo Shootout promises to be a great experience for all amateur and professional photographers who have an interest in
capturing the brilliance of the tropical eco-systems of the Mexican
Promoted by the Mexico Silvestre organization, Cozumel Photo
Shootout will be hosted by the prestigious Presidente InterContinental
Hotel from which the photographic expeditions will depart and where the
workshops, presentations and expositions will take place.
