From 2010, the Open Fotosub Lanzarote Mar de Lava is the meeting point where photograph, nature and diving lovers enjoy a unique competition. The nice weather, the richness of seabeds of the Lanzarote Island and the festive atmosphere make this Open Fotosub an unforgettable experience.
The Open Fotosub Lanzarote Mar de Lava continues making its way on the only manner it knows to do it, seriously, with its own wish and character, encouraging respect, balance and sensibility with the environment and the ecology. It is a way to express the relationship between the nature and the human being.
In this Open Fotosub, we continue working to differentiate ourselves and go ahead with emphasizing quality, being the only Underwater Photo Competition that offers a total freedom to photographers in immersion spots (nearly the whole island), with no limit of immersions on the competition days, and the chance to present very creative collections without strict categories as applied in other competitions, etc. In this 8th edition, the Open Fotosub Mar de Lava is given about 10,000€ in prizes, both in cash and in diving equipment or diving travels such as, for example, a cruise for two people in Maldives Islands.

We are Rafael Mesa, Joaquín Vera and Félix Viña, managers of the Open Fotosub Lanzarote Mar de lava. Three friends who are passionate about the sea, diving and photography. Some years ago, we had the idea – a little crazy idea in those days – to create an Underwater Photo Competition in Lanzarote. That was the way how little by little – and with a lot of effort, sacrifice and help – we could create and develop the concept “Open Fotosub Lanzarote Mar de lava”, an attention and focus on the richness of the marine environment through the photography and art, at the same time that it is a meeting point for friends and nature lovers.
Do not hesitate to contact us if you have any doubt about the Open Fotosub, if you want to send any suggestion or simply greet us. We are glad to meet new people.
