Photographer Brian Skerry Selects Winners of Ocean Soul Award
January 14, 2020

We were honored to welcome National Geographic photographer Brian Skerry as a special guest judge this year in the Ocean Awareness Contest. The Ocean Soul Award recognized 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 Ocean Soul Award was presented to two visual artists: Jane Zhang (13, Vancouver, Canada) and Jeanie Yu (16, California). The recipients of the award received an autographed copy of Brian’s book, Ocean Soul.

Hear more about why Brian selected these impactful works of art:

“Our Future” by Jane Zhang (Age 13, Vancouver, Canada)

“Zoo Casting” by Jeanie Yu (Age 16, California)
