"I am so stoked to receive this award. The photo was taken on an improvised blackwater dive with Eduardo Acevedo in Raja Ampat on our Insider Divers expedition in February 2018. It was always a bucket list critter to find and on this dive we got lucky."
The image was shot with a Nikon D500 and 60mm in an Isotta housing with two INON Z330 strobes.
