Share This Article



ADEX Singapore 2024 is just days away, and the organizers have finalized the programs for the show’s three stages—the Underwater360 stage, the TekTalk Asia stage, and—most importantly for underwater shooters—the Image/Film Festival stage.

Legendary National Geographic photographers David Doubilet and Jennifer Hayes are the headliners, but there are dozens of other well-known shooters presenting at the show (many of whom are DPG contributors), such as Annie Crawley, Tobias Friedrich, Shane Gross, Imran Ahmad, Erin Quigley, Jason Isley, Berkley White, Jim Decker, Michael Aw, Nicolas Remy, William Tan, and Aaron Wong.

In addition to the interesting talks, there are various panel discussions taking place on the Image/Film Festival stage. These include “Through the Lens: The Importance of Equipment in Underwater Photography and Filmmaking” on Friday morning, “The Role of the Underwater Photographer in the Era of Generative Artificial Intelligence” on Sunday morning, and “Above and Below – Exploring Two Worlds” on Sunday afternoon. There’s also a book festival component on Saturday afternoon, with authors talking about their works—including Doubilet on his 2021 career-defining book Two Worlds: Above and Below the Sea.

Check out the full Image/Film Festival program below, and head over to the ADEX website for more information. The event runs from April 12th–14th and tickets are available here. See you there!
