The Urban Divers are sponsoring the eighth annual edition of their Submerge Festival, which showcases film/video, photography and other art media produced by local and international artists to raise awareness of water. This year's festival will be held in July in Red Hook (exact venue and days, TBD). The festival moves to a different waterfront community and venue every year.

Organizers are accepting all genres in video or film, photography, most matted and exhibit ready. Mobiles must take up more than three feet by three feet of space. Entry fees are only $20 per submission. A bio and description of art work should go along with the submission. The address for the entry fee and submissions is 89 Pioneer Street, Brooklyn NY 11231.

Artists would need to make arrangement for hand delivery of mobiles and photography, submissions are now being accepted and will be through the end of June. Winners will be announced on July 1.

The 8th Annual Submerge Art & Environment Festival will be presented this year in a unique outdoor exhibit and film screening venue, along with a presentation of Live! Beneath the Estuary – A live underwater video exploration and underwater narration with submerged Urban Divers. The festival will also travel to other waterfront venues along NY Harbor.
