NWSA Photo Contest

The photo contest is held every October during our club meeting, in place of a speaker. It's a great chance to show off your photographic chops and earn some bragging rights.

 The Categories:

  • Old Salt
  • Best NWSA Group Shot
  • Best Under Sail
  • Best Scenic
  • Best Sunrise/Sunset
  • Best Blooper
  • Most Original Boat Name


  1. All photos must have been taken within the past year
  2. All photos must have been taken by the NWSA member submitting the shot
  3. All pictures must be 5 x 7 prints - if submitted digitally, keep in mind they will be shown as 5 x 7
  4. You can submit no more than two pictures per category
  5. You can't submit the same picture in multiple categories

How to Submit: There are several options to submit photos:

  1. Bring a hard copy of your photo to the meeting. This is ideal as it gives you the chance to vote for yourself!
  2. Submit your photo in advance.
  3. Email digital photos to our Vice Commodore.
If you only have the image as a hard copy, you can mail it to the coordinator:

Please include your name and the category you want the picture to be included in.


All members at the general membership meeting are given a ballot and asked to select their favorite picture from each category. The photographer remains anonymous until judging is complete. Winners will be announced in November (at our banquet and via an email blast).

Good luck!
