​HENRI LLOYD PHOTO COMPETITION

21 September 2017

Have you been loving all the photos from on board as much as we have? You can now have your say as to which image is the best, in the Henri Lloyd Photo Competition.

New for the Clipper 2017-18 Race, the Clipper Race along with Henri Lloyd, our Technical Clothing Partner, is asking for input from the crew and supporters to decide which is the best image captured on board.

Julia Fry, Clipper Race Head of Communications, said: “We ask our intrepid crew to try to capture the essence of life on board throughout their unique journey on the Clipper Race. We know how important it is for those following to be able to have a window into the challenge the Race Crew are taking on.

“The Henri Lloyd Photo Competition also gives us the opportunity to reward the crew for their creativity, time and effort, and will help make sure the experience lives on long after the salt has dried.”

The winning photographer will be awarded with some fantastic Henri Lloyd goodies as recognition for their work. The Clipper Race will also be giving the winning team £100 worth of local currency to spend as they wish in order to celebrate.

Henri Lloyd has been the technical clothing partner to the Clipper Round the World Yacht Race since 2002. Amy Grealish, Head of PR and Marketing for Henri Lloyd, said: “We have long enjoyed witnessing and hearing about the highs and lows that Clipper Race Crew endure during the race. The photos from on board provide an insight into the extreme conditions crew face whilst racing, and how the Henri Lloyd clothing lives up to the challenge.

“We are excited to share the best crew photography from on board and utilise the power of social media for the Henri Lloyd Photo Competition.”

So how can you vote?

Throughout each race the Clipper Race Communications Team will be carefully creating a shortlist of incredible images sent from on board. One image from each team will be chosen to go into a public vote.

Over the last three days of each arrival window, there will be daily Twitter polls pitting four of the yacht’s best photos against each other.

The photo with the most votes each day will then face the final judgement from Henri Lloyd and the winning image, photographer and team will be announced at the Prize Giving Ceremony.

For Race 5 + 6 (Sydney-Hobart & The Wondrous Whitsundays Race), the Twitter polls will take place on 12, 13 and 14 January, starting at 9am GMT and lasting 24 hours each.
