This competition is now closed.

A chance to cool off while looking at activist art in honour of Shark Week, dive in (literally) to sustainable Shanghai-based swimwear brand In Sharks We Trust's underwater exhibit.

Held at The Middle House hotel's pool, the exhibition is part of the label founder Miao Wong's creative and community efforts to raise awareness around the shark fin industry and conservation across the city. (The group also dedicate all net profits to shark and ocean conservation and make every costume using reclaimed fishnets).

Split into two photo series (one across each side of the pool), the Honor of Fins exhibit begins with 'In Way of Beauty', featuring photographs taken at Shanghai's biggest seafood market. The second part is the 'Sharks Chef' collection, including nine familiar Shanghai chefs and restaurateurs, all photographed in the brand's signature shark-print swimwear, representing a sustainable and conscious food future.
