But the promotion of the underwater image can pass by many other vectors:

Since its creation, the association's main activity has been to organize the
New Caledonia Underwater Image Festival.

  • Organization of temporary exhibitions (University of New Caledonia in 2019, high schools in 2020, Maritime Museum in 2021, ...)
  • Availability of the images (after agreement of the photographers concerned) for other collective actions: exhibition on the railings of the Noumea Town Hall (2017), exhibition with the CPS in Wallis and Futuna (2020), reception of medical centres (2020)
  • Provision of images in the context of requests from partners: New Caledonia Maritime Cluster (2019), Water Day organised by the City of Nouméa (2019), celebration of the 10th anniversary of the inscription of the lagoons on UNESCO's World Heritage List (2018)
