Brian Skerry Recognizes Winners of the Ocean Soul AwardNovember 18, 2020
We were honored to once again welcome National Geographic photographer Brian Skerry as a special guest judge this year in the Ocean Awareness Contest. The Ocean Soul Award recognizes a visual art submission in each age division that depicts the “soul” of the ocean—a place of beauty and mystery, a place in peril, and ultimately, a place of hope.
The 2020 Ocean Soul Award was selected by Brian and presented to two visual artists: Orion Yang (Vancouver, Canada) and Jun Hee Won (Cupertino, California). The recipients of the award received an autographed copy of Brian’s book, Ocean Soul.
“[This] beautiful artwork truly captures the mounting problems facing our oceans and planet, but they also convey the hope that exists as long as we are moved to action.”
