The world’s best sailing photographers will be celebrated for the fifth consecutive time in 2014. Yacht Racing photographers from all over the world will once again be invited to attend the Mirabaud Yacht Racing Image award in 2014. Started in 2009, this event is the world’s premier photography competition dedicated to the sport of sailing, celebrating the very best yacht racing image taken during the year, and which best represents the essence and excitement of the sport. The 2013 Mirabaud Yacht Racing Image uncovered a new, stunning collection of images sent by 82 professional photographers spanning nineteen countries. More than one million people saw their photographs through social networks, whilst the event website saw the visit of more than 120’000 single visitors. The overall winner, Abner Kingman, received the Mirabaud Yacht Racing Image Award and a TAG Heuer regatta chronogaph, whilst UK yacht racing photographer Rick Tomlinson received the Public Award trophy as well as items from event partner Nespresso. Since its debuts, the Mirabaud Yacht Racing Image Award has been awarded to four world class photographers: Thierry Martinez (2010 and 2011), Kurt Arrigo (2012) and Abner Kingman (2013). In order to guarantee and increase the global quality of the contest, the rules have been upgraded, thanks to advice from some of the world’s most prominent yacht racing photographers, with amongst others the introduction of a preselection of the fifty best pictures decided by the contest’s international and independent jury. Superb prizes will once again be distributed to the best photographers. The event is organised by MaxComm Communication (www.maxcomm.ch) and is open to professional yacht racing photographers from all over the world. Its purpose 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.
