Celebrate the Sea 2008


This is an event to be watched…. literally!! Celebrate the Sea Festival will be showcasing some of the best in underwater pictures, documentaries and movies along with some of the top dogs in the field!!! The organizers say that the primary objective of the CTS festival remains; to have the world dedicate a day to remember and celebrate the sea, like a Christmas or a New Years day. Sounds like a perfect party to me!

The venue in itself is alluring at Manila Ocean Park – the Philippines’ first state-of-the-art Oceanarium, open water marine habitat.

The 2008 festival will comprise of imagery presentations and seminars by a panel of world renowned image makers and marine scientists such 5 Emmies Winner Stan Waterman, Leandro Blanco, Peter Scoone, cinematographer of the BBC Blue Planet series, Dr Phil Nyutten, David Doubilet, Jennifer Hayes and Emory Kristof of National Geographic, Dr Carden Wallace, coral scientist, Fred Buyle – four times world free diving champion, Scott Tuason, author and underwater photographer and Daniel Mercier – founder World Underwater Picture Festival will be on site to officiate the festival.
