Photography Competition 2017

We are running our 2017 Photography Competition for the eigth year in partnership with Classic Boat magazine.  Entries for 2017 are 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's
Photographer 2017 will be chosen from Categories A-E and the winning photograph to be included in NHS-UK's promotional material.

The winner will receive £1,000 to be awarded on a theme or activity involving a Registered Historic Vessel (for example, attending maritime festivals, conservation or maintenance work, maritime skills training or educational programmes held on board an historic vessel).  

All short-listed entrants will be invited to our prestigious award ceremony being held in London. 

As an added incentive, at the end of each month we will choose a favourite from the photos received and the entrant will win a small prize, so be sure to include your full address on your entry form!
