Nonprofit organization Dive into the Pink announces the second annual Think Pink photo competition.

Nonprofit organization Dive into the Pink, which supports breast cancer research and survivor support, announces its second annual Think Pink photo competition. Photographers are invited to submit their most exciting underwater images featuring the color pink, with proceeds used to support the fight against breast cancer. Prizes include a trip to Anilao, Philippines, sponsored by Crystal Blue Resort, a liveaboard trip to Tubbataha reef sponsored by the Discovery Fleet, underwater photography gear from AOI, Saga, and Kraken Sports, and a book sponsored by Scott “Gutsy” Tuason/Squires Bingham Sports.

Entering the Think Pink photo contest

The judging panel is made up of professional underwater photographers Alex Mustard, Tanya Burnett, and Mike Bartick. The contest is open for entries through July 6, 2018 for both wide-angle and macro categories at diveintothepink.org/think-pink. Winning images will be used to help promote Dive into the Pink and the third annual Pink Auction, a silent online auction that kicks off in August 2018. Items up for bidding include exotic dive trips, dive gear, underwater photography gear, jewelry, and apparel. Bidding will remain open through 4:00 pm PDT on October 7, 2017 at 32auctions.com/divepink2018.

Dive into the Pink was founded in 2016 by Allison Vitsky Sallmon, a breast cancer survivor, veteran scuba diver, and underwater photographer, who wanted to raise money to fight cancer by mobilizing the scuba community through dive charters and dive-related activities. Dive into the Pink is a 501c3 organization, and 100 percent of proceeds are redistributed. Beneficiaries include the Young Survival Coalition (YSC), an international organization dedicated to the critical issues of young women with breast cancer, and the Guise Laboratory at Indiana University, who are investigating whether certain characteristics of the bone-marrow microenvironment can alter/promote the spread of cancer to the bone.
