What is Photographer of the Year?
Photographer of the Year 2018 is a national title awarded by a competition held in various countries around the world.
Names and images of photographers participating in the World ShootOut 2018 are automatically passed on to the organization holding the competition in the photographer’s country. 
In each country, a professional jury panel first selects and publishes the 5 finalists competing on the title. Later on, the winner is announced during a local dive show.
