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.


We have resumed monthly meetings @ Culinary Dropout. They will also be streamed via Zoom for those that can’t attend in-person.

The restaurant is requiring a firm headcount so please RSVP to Daniel at least 4 days in advance by emailing him or by clicking HERE to go to the Desert Dolphins Facebook to let him know. Zoom information is also available on Facebook.

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.
