French photographer Greg Lecoeur is this year's Underwater Photographer of the Year, winning with an image called "Frozen Mobile Home" that features a group of crabeater seals swirling gracefully around an iceberg in Antarctica. Since 1965, the Underwater Photographer of the Year awards have been focused on this fascinating underwater realm. The competition "celebrates photography beneath the surface of the ocean, lakes, rivers and even swimming pools." Winners are selected in 13 categories including up-and-coming photographers, marine conservation and British photographers.
