Bellingham Marine is holding a photo contest for photos of marinas, winners will receive a Yeti Hopper and be featured in the company’s 2016 wall calendar.
Marinas are growing around the world, assisting boaties and yachties alike while saving a natural marine resource. Marinas provide jobs, boost tourism, and can have a significant impact on a local economy, says Bellingham Marine. In 2007, Bellingham Marine started an annual photo contest to celebrate marinas on a global level and to stir a passion within the industry for sharing the beauty and importance of marinas and waterway infrastructure projects.
Photography is a powerful medium of expression that has the ability to evoke an emotional response. This open and free photo contest seeks to inspire the creation and sharing of imagery, which conveys the beauty of marinas and the role they play in local communities and in the boating and fishing industries.
The contest is open to all individuals over the age of 18. Images must include a Bellingham Marine dock or pontoon system or other Bellingham product to be eligible. Winners will be announced in October and will receive a Yeti Hopper soft-sided cooler valued at US$300.00; winning photos will be featured in the company’s 2016 calendar.
All photo entries should be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org by August 31, 2015. The name of the photographer and /or individual submitting the photo, contact information, the name of the marina and its location must be included with all entries.
