The Video Jury decided not to attribute a Special Prize of the Jury for the submissions received.

Both juries encourage participants and others to keep learning about the ocean, hone their own story telling skills for future celebrations and, most importantly, to take practical action in every day life to respect and protect the ocean for a healthy planet and healthy people.

All participants have received their honorary diplomas in time for World Oceans Day.

Congratulations to all participants and particularly to all winners of Mundus maris Awards! Keep up the good work and look forward to your works next year!
