Valeport In Action Competition – Winners Announced

Valeport In Action Competition

Great images and content made life difficult in judging the Valeport in Action competition.

The location information, work being conducted and stories behind the images and video were all very interesting.  It was great to see such variety and unusual applications in some cases!

Confirmed winners selected are:

Picture category (iPad mini) 
Daniel Costa, University of California, USA.  Photo of a Weddell Seal in the Ross Sea, Antarctica carrying a Valeport CTD sensor integrated into a tag built by the Sea Mammal Research Unit, St Andrews.

Video category (iPad Air)
Ross Jennings, University of Hull, UK.
 Video of a Valeport Midas DWR’s being deployed at Spurn Point at the mouth of the Humber Estuary, UK. This was a pilot deployment which aimed to test the device and deployment methodology for later fieldwork in more energetic sites upstream.
