No more DYK and Dive the World

Sadly, the Danish/Swedish dive magazine DYK along with their international start-up Dive the World have gone out of business. Bad news - I was hoping they would publish many more of my stories.

Posted on Apr 1, 2013

I got world from former editor-in-chief Jesper Kjøller about the bankrupcy a couple weeks ago, and I guess by now it is common knowledge.

I would like to thank them for publishing my stories in the past years - I've had several stories on print since my first contribution about manatees way back in 2006.

My features in DYK and Dive the World

Unfortunately I don't even have a PDF of the manatee story or my next story about the Flooded Forest in lake Lygnstøylsvatnet - but I do have my portfolio, printed in April 2008:

Since I was working for the Norwegian magazine Dykking at the time, I didn't have much material published at the competition... apart from a short story about a wreck called Affaire:

In 2011 the brilliant Dive the World became a reality, and I was lucky enough to be selected for their inaugural edition with a feature about Bonaire:

I think, and many with me, that Dive the World was one of the best magazines out there. I completely loved how they really spent a lot of pages on each feature, and really let the images tell the story.

In January 2013 my last contribution was printed, a 22-page feature about diving in Norway which I did together with Espen Rekdal (his images, my text):

I'm very sad to see both magazines go, especielly since I had planned to get them to publish several more stories in the months and years ahead - and they wanted me to become a more regular contributer.

The DYK team will continue the website and there will still be access to the vast archives they have built up during the years they were in business.

I wish everyone at DYK and DTW all the best for the future.

PS - If you haven't heard this sad news already, this is NOT an April fool's day joke!
