A note from Dr Richard Smith about this year’s Ethical Standards Review

“It has been a great honour to conduct an Ethical Standards Review of the stunning images entered into the Underwater Tour Awards again this year. We initially flagged half a dozen shots for review, and reached out to the photographers to better understand the processes by which they came about their images. Certain animal behaviours are uncommon to see, but of course this doesn’t imply that they don’t happen ordinarily under natural circumstances. We were happy to hear in detail the consideration that the photographers had taken in capturing their images and the lengths they went to in minimising disturbance of their subjects. In no cases did the photographers descriptions raise any red flags in the review process.” Dr Richard Smith
