The winners of the 2015 Underwater Photography Contest hosted by the University of Miami's Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science have just been announced! Since the contest's inception in 2005, each year the school invites amateur photographers from around the world to submit their best underwater images in the categories macro, fish or marine animal portraiture, wide angle, and student submissions.

This year, Andrey Shpatak took home the top prize out of over 500 entries for his stunning capture of a Japanese War Bonnet in Rudnaya Bay. The spectacular-looking fish, whose tendril-like cirri are said to resemble the feathers in an Indian Chieftain’s war bonnet, stares unblinkingly forward in this magnificent images.
