The 80 photos selected by the international jury are available on the event's website.

Today we unveil the Top 20, dominated this year by Italian photographers! The winners will be celebrated on 9 December at the Nautic in Paris and the prizes awarded by an internationally renowned sailor.

No less than 126 professional photographers representing 24 nations entered the Mirabaud Yacht Racing Image award 2021 photo competition. Today we reveal the Top 20.

The main ranking, the Mirabaud Yacht Racing Image award, was established by the international jury made up of Jo Aleh (NZL), Gilles Martin-Raget (FRA), Glenn Ashby (AUS), Nicolas Mirabaud (SUI) and Anne-Cécile Turner (FRA).

The top 20 includes some of the world's most prominent sailing and yacht racing photographers, active all over the world. The overall winner of the 2021 edition is one of them.

Italy wins the ranking by nations, with five images in the top 20, ahead of France (3 images), New Zealand, the USA and Russia (2 images).

The Public Award ranking, based on the number of votes cast on the Internet (nearly 15,000), is different from the ranking established by the international jury. The votes of the members of the international jury were also quite different from each other, which illustrates the richness of sailing photography and the wide range of emotions and reactions that these photos evoke.

The Public Award was dominated by France (6 photos), followed by Italy and Great Britain (3 images), Russia and Hungary (2 photos).
