Best of VideoRay" 2020 Photo Contest

It’s that time of year – time to submit your entries for VideoRay’s 2020 photo contest! We’re excited to see your VideoRay ROV in action.

All submitters will receive a VideoRay T-shirt and VideoRay-branded COVID-19 face mask. In addition, the grand prize winner will receive an electronic tablet, and the top five submitters will receive a VideoRay Operations jacket.

All images submitted will be displayed early next year in the “Best of VideoRay 2020” photo gallery on the website ( with full photo credits.

Here are some ideas for submissions:

  • Send a photo of you or your team with your VideoRay ROV.
  • Show where your ROV has been, such as above-water shots with the submersible in your operation environment.
  • Underwater photos taken by a diver or another VideoRay ROV system are great – the Mission Specialist ROVs can take 13MP stills.

Be creative!
