Hello. You're currently not logged in. If you are already an SC member, please log in now.

Contributing to the SC is free. You just need to register and you can start sharing your videos and photographs with our worldwide users .

Join the growing number of contributors who are already taking part in the project and by making your materials accessible to the public via the Internet, help to build this valuable source of information for scientists, divers and conservationists.

Please note that you can only upload videos and photographs for which you own the full rights.

How should I name the files that I upload?

The names of your files (for videos or photographs) are not displayed on the site, so you can name them as you wish. However, the server will need to work with these files in order to transcode them (videos) or create several smaller versions (photographs). For this reason, we ask that you only use letters from the English alphabet, without any accent marks and without using characters like #, @, % or even &. Please keep them as simple as you can, to avoid any possible problems.

I have lots of material. How can I contribute it?

Contributing to the SC is free and can be done in a few easy steps. Basically, you will need to create an account on the site (please use your real name, not a nickname) and log in. Then the Upload menu will be enabled and you can access the Photo and Video forms for uploading material. All the fields in these forms have an explanation, so please read and follow them carefully and ask us any questions you may have. If you have hundreds or thousands of items and want to upload them all, contact us and we will see if we can upload them in a batch.
