Are you interested in ships and seafaring, history, early man, and archaeology? Covering nearly 3/4 of the Earth’s surface, water is the source of all life on our planet. Beneath the surface of our oceans, lakes, rivers, and wetlands lies a physical record of humankind preserved in prehistoric and historic shorelines, shipwrecks, inundated cities, harbors, and other traces of our past.
Dive into our web site and discover for yourself the many facets of underwater archaeology and the people and projects worldwide that are involved in this fascinating field.
The ACUA invites SHA members and conference attendees to participate in the 18th annual Archaeological Photo Festival Competition. All entries will be displayed at the SHA conference on Historical and Underwater Archaeology to be held in Quebec City, from January8-12, 2014 and will be posted to the ACUA website for all the world to see.
You can submit entries by sending them in advance or by bringing them to the conference in Quebec. If you are traveling internationally, we recommend you bring your photos with you. Participants may still choose to send them not later than December 15 to insure delivery. For full instructions download the ACUA Photo Contest 2014 form.
Whether you pan to bring or courier your entry, please email or fax the form to Charles Dagneau by December 20. His contact details are available on the photo contest application form.
Pull out all those great photos and plan now to get involved. Selected photos from Quebec City will be featured in the 2015 Archaeological Contest calendar. Just think, your photo could be next year’s cover! You too can enjoy the adulation of your friends, but only if you enter.
The 2014 Archaeological Photo Contest Calendar is now available! It features fantastic photos by Bretty Seymour, Drew Buchner, Dan Warren, Robert Church, Sue Reichert, Thierry Boyer, and Erica D’Elia. Click on the images below to preview.
