The Mirabaud Yacht Racing Image photo competition has announced the composition of its international jury 2019. Ricardo Pinto, professional sailing photographer and winner of the previous edition, Rob Hodgetts, international sports journalist for CNN, Cliff Webb, president of the Yachting Journalists' Association, Magda Makowska, professional sailor and organizer of the Sopot Match Race, Helena de la Gandara, renowned press officer in Spain and beyond, and Nicolas Mirabaud, Managing Partner and member of the Executive Committee of Mirabaud & Cie SA, will select the best sailing photos of the year.

Initiated in 2010, the Mirabaud Yacht Racing Image award is the leading international photo competition dedicated to the sport of sailing. Its objective is to give the opportunity to sailing photographers from all over the world to share their passion with the public.

"We have been supporting this event since day one, ten years ago", recounts Nicolas Mirabaud. " During this time, we have witnessed the evolution of the photographers' work, as well as the type of events and sailing boats with passion. The images, whether artistic or highly technical, reflect the recent history of competitive sailing and the tremendous developments of the sport."

The top eighty images will be pre-selected by three professional photographers / picture editors: Ricardo Pinto, Rob Hodgetts and Cliff Webb. The top 80 will be published on the event website on 22 October. The public will then be invited to vote for their favourite photo.

The twenty best images selected by the International Jury will be exhibited on 25 and 26 November in Bilbao (ESP), at the Yacht Racing Forum. The prestigious award will be presented in public on November 26, in the presence of the main players in the world of competitive sailing.

The main prize, the Mirabaud Yacht Racing Image award, will be selected by the international jury. Two secondary distinctions will be awarded in parallel: the public prize, based on votes collected on social networks, as well as the Yacht Racing Forum prize, chosen by the event delegates.

The submission of photos is open until October 13th at midnight on the event website.
