Teledyne Marine 2020 Photo/Data Compe​​tition & Corporate Giving Campaign​​​​​​​​

Teledyne Marine is pleased to kick-off of our annual photo/data/video contest in which we invite customers to share photos or videos of our products in action in the office, lab, or field; as well as data samples collected using Teledyne Marine products​.

This year, in light of the many challenges and continued uncertainty that so many are facing, we’ve combined our annual photo contest with a corporate giving campaign. Adversity can bring out the best in people, so let’s work together to do some good. For each qualified photo contest entry, Teledyne Marine will donate $10 USD to Save the Children, which is an organization working hard to ensure the health, safety and psychological well-being of children around the globe. COVID 19 has resulted in enhanced need, particularly for children in already under-served areas. We are pleased to work in concert with our customers and Save the Children to help meet the critical needs of children around the world.​
