Seventy of the world’s best yacht racing photographers, representing seventeen nations, have submitted a picture for the Mirabaud Yacht Racing Image Award 2013. The public is now invited to vote online.
The Mirabaud Yacht Racing Image Award is open to professional photographers from all over the world. Its goal is to pay tribute to their work, to provide them with a promotional platform and to help promote the sport of sailing to a wider audience.
Started in 2009, Kurt Arrigo won the 2012 award for his photography taken during the Volcano Race, featuring the yacht Nilaya and the reflection of the island of Capri on her hull. Forty-six photographers from all over the world participated in the 2012 contest.
Two prizes will be awarded on December 11, in Gothenburg, during the World Yacht Racing Forum.
The Mirabaud Yacht Racing Image 2013 (main prize) will be selected by an international and independent jury. The Prize of the public will be awarded following votes from the public on Internet (until November 30) and delegates of the World Yacht Racing Forum.
