Halmos College of Arts and Sciences: Student Government Association

The Shutter Shark Student Underwater Photography Contest was created and organized by graduate students at the Nova Southeastern University Halmos College of Natural Sciences and Oceanography (NSU-CNSO) in 2008.

It is a way for students to become more involved in the student community and serves as an artistic outlet incorporating their marine research and appreciation of the underwater world.

The contest is limited to current students and is designed as an avenue for amateur photographers to develop their skills and compete amongst their peers. The contest is judged by a panel of respected local underwater photographers and NSU-CNSO faculty.

Previous years have been a great success with several students who won or placed in past Shutter Shark contests having gone on to place in larger international photography competitions!
