Yacht Racing Image of the Year at World Yacht Racing Forum

The best yacht racing photograph of the year will once again be awarded during the World Yacht Racing Forum by the event’s Gold Partner MIRABAUD.
Professional yacht racing photographers from around the world are invited to submit their best yacht racing image from 2011 before Monday 31st October to enter the ‘Yacht Racing Image of the Year 2011’ organised by the World Yacht Racing Forum and presented by WYRF Gold Partner Mirabaud & Cie, banquiers privés.

A shortlist of the best selected images will be displayed on the forum website and Facebook page from 5th November where viewers will be asked to vote for their favourite image. The selected images will then be printed and displayed in the networking lounge at the World Yacht Racing Forum. Delegates will also be asked to vote for their favourite image during the event and the winning image and photographer will be announced on the second day of the Forum, Wednesday 14th December.

“The Yacht Racing Image of the Year 2011 gives us the opportunity to celebrate the photographer who best portrays the essence of yacht racing”, commented Antonio Palma, Partner and CEO of Mirabaud. “The sport of sailing is at the heart of our passion for human relations, technology and high performance, three themes that are particularly dear to us in the world of banking and finance. The photo award is the visual expression of our passion. We look forward to seeing this exhibition and to be once again part of the World Yacht Racing Forum.”

The ‘Yacht Racing Image of the Year 2011’ is open to professional photographers only.

Mirabaud has been involved in international yacht racing for many years, notably through its sponsorship of the Bol d’Or Mirabaud, Thomas Jundt’s hydrofoil prototype, the Mirabaud LX, the Swiss Sailing Night and the World Yacht Racing Forum. Mirabaud is also Dominique Wavre’s main partner for the Transat Jacques Vabre 2011 and the Vendée Globe 2012-13.
