Come join one of the longest running SCUBA clubs in Arizona!

Our mission is: To bring together diving enthusiasts to promote marine & dive Education, Conservation, and Community.


Due to Coronavirus restrictions on restaurants, the Desert Dolphins Dive Club monthly meeting will be held online via Zoom until restrictions on large gatherings are lifted.

We normally meet at Culinary Dropout – 2543 E. Grant Rd

2019 Photo Contest Entry Form

Hi Dolphins!

The photo contest is here already! We are looking forward to seeing your amazing photos again this year!

To see a list of the rules, please click HERE. You can find a copy of the Model Release by clicking HERE.

To pay for your entries, please click HERE.

If you are submitting an entry, please fill out the form below. Entries MUST be filled out by the October meeting.

A few notable rule changes this year:

  1. Our rotating Category this year is Multi-Subject. Please read the rules more to understand this category but, for those that are interested, this is where Close-Focus, Wide-Angle (CFWA) would fit.
  2. HDR and Panoramas are allowed. This was heavily discussed but, because many cameras are doing this work behind the scenes, it seemed fair to open it up to the competition. If submitting a panoramic photo, please keep in mind the next line about cropping as we will still be cropping photos to normal sizes.
  3. Be aware of cropping of your photo. If you win, we will be printing on 5×7, 8×10 or 11×14 stock, usually. You might want to check how your photo would look in a 5:7, 8:10 or 11:14 crop just to be sure it would look well on a print.
  4. File naming will be enforced this year. In past years, the committee has had to put in dozens of hours just cleaning up file names. Please take the time to properly name your submissions. (Ask us if you don’t know how to name it.) Submissions that are not properly named may be excluded from the contest.
