NYC Photo Competition 2011
December 30th, 2010 @ 11:04 PM EST by admin

We KNOW you’ve got them: great pictures of the NYC and NYC activities! It’s time to dust them off (or open them up) and let us all see — the NYC Photo Club is running a PHOTO COMPETITION!

Here are the photo categories:

1. Racing
2. Cruising
3. Social activity
4. Sailing school
5. Launch
6. Haulout
7. Boats
8. Creative
9. Artistic/abstract
10. Candid
11. Humorous
12. Winter
13. Historical/vintage

The contest rules are simple:

  • the contest is open to members of the NYC and individuals connected to the NYC
  • the photo must be your own photo (submissions in the Historical/vintage category excepted)
  • the subject matter of the photo must be NYC-oriented
  • you may submit up to three photos per category
  • photos must be submitted by the end of February, 2011

Don’t delay!  To submit photos to the competition:

  • email submissions to: ron.a.jenkins@gmail.com
  • electronic submissions only: camera files or scans of photos/film/transparencies
  • file formats accepted: JPEG, PNG, or TIFF only please
  • please name image files as follows:
    YOURLASTNAME_YOURFIRSTNAME_CATEGORYNUMBER_n.ext
    – where “n” is 1, 2, or 3 depending on how many photos you are submitting to a category
    – where “ext” is either JPG, PNG, or TIF depending on the file format used

    EXAMPLE: JENKINS_RON_10_2.JPG is Ron Jenkins’s second photo submitted in the “Candid” category, a jpeg image

We guarantee that any photos you submit to the contest will not be used for commercial purposes, nor for any use unrelated to the National Yacht Club. We do hope to show the best of the submissions at a Club Sailor’s night in March, and to include winners in a Club calendar to be produced in the future.
