The jury of the annual Mirabaud Yacht Racing Image Awards 2020 will reward the best professional photographers and their best sailing images for the eleventh time. This year's shortlist of 80 shortlisted entries, chosen from over 130 entries, was published on the competition website on 15 October and is open until 10 November for viewers to vote for their favourites. The names of the winners will be announced on November 24.
The competition rules have been changed a little bit in 2020. Whereas previously a photo had to be taken within the last year, this time the contest is open for entries taken between 1 January 2000 and 6 October 2020 but not previously nominated for the Mirabaud Yacht Racing Image. So this year's winning photos will get the high-profile title «best pictures of the century».
We suggest looking at the work of five Russian photographers and their five competitors from abroad.
