News Video Contest Deadline Extended to 2021

Global Underwater Explorers (GUE) along with contest sponsors Halcyon, Fourth Element, Paralenz, Shearwater, Santi, and Divers Alert Network (DAN) are looking for videographers to show off their skills while sharing their passion for the underwater world.




In celebration of the magnificent underwater world, Global Underwater Explorers’ along with contest sponsors are pleased to announce the deadline for the Video Contest has been extended into 2021. The contest was originally slated to end this September, but due to COVID-19 and stay at home orders around the globe, GUE has extended the contest until September 30, 2021. 

“By adding an extra year to the timeline for the contest we hope divers will have time to get back in the water and to create some really inspiring videos,” said GUE President Jarrod Jablonski. “The contest offers some pretty impressive cash and prizes, so we are looking for people to really wow us with imagery but most importantly storyline and passion.”

Video submissions should connect the viewer to the majesty of the underwater world and focus on a particular aspect of the subject’s location, such as its unique ecology, ecosystem vulnerability, or marine life inhabitants. Alternatively, the video could provide a personal account of the impact this environment has made on the creator. The style of the video can be at the discretion of the creator, but it must be a minimum of three minutes long and a maximum of ten minutes.

(Not) Up Close, but Still Personal




Getting a great fitting drysuit isn’t easy. In these days of social distancing it’s even harder, but fourth element’s BIOMAP® service offers the perfect way to get a drysuit made to your exact measurements and specifications without the need for tape measures or any physical contact.
The Argonaut 2.0 drysuit uses the award winning BIOMAP® system to create a bespoke pattern unique to you. At the heart of the pattern development was the quest for improved mobility, easier gas management, stronger construction, greater streamlining, lighter weight and easier donning and doffing, but most importantly, the introduction of an improved women’s pattern that fits beautifully.

This system, coupled with our online ordering platform allows complete control over suit design and specification, even down to the ‘GUE’ valve position – adjusting the position of the shoulder dump for on trim performance. The result is more than just ‘made to measure,’ it is a bespoke suit built to the exact requirements of the customer. If you want a suit optimized for thinner undergarments, or one with room for additional layering for extreme conditions, this can be specified.

The process is simple; two photos are taken from a safe distance, then sent to fourth element’s garment specialists to turn into a bespoke pattern and made in their European factory. The suit is quality tested in house before being shipped directly to your dealer or your home.

To order; contact fourth element {} or visit your local Argonaut dealer
