Amateur Photographer of the Year Competition

National Historic Ships UK Photography Competition 2012

Basic CMYK After the success of the photography competition in its first year, National Historic Ships UK has decided to run it again in 2012 in partnership with Classic Boat magazine. We received over 350 entries in 2010 and almost equalled that number in 2011, thanks to support from the sponsors with even more great prizes to be won.

Entries were encouraged from all those with an interest in maritime heritage, including school children, historic vessel owners, maritime enthusiasts and those with knowledge of traditional skills or nautical techniques. National Historic Ships UK offered a monetary prize of £1,000 for the overall competition winner, to be spent on a theme or activity involving a vessel from the National Register of Historic Vessels. This year, for the first time, we were also able to offer a Beken image for the winner of Category A, whilst the digital cameras awarded to the successful school entrants are the latest models tailored to your age group. All short-listed entrants are invited to our prestigious national awards ceremony on board HMS Belfast.
