The Good, the Bad and the Funny – The Green Blue Initiative Wants Your Sailing Photos

The Green Blue, the joint environment programme for the RYA (Royal Yachting Association) and the BMF (British Marine Federation), is calling all boaters to send them their photos from out on the water for their new photography competition ‘The Good, The Bad and The Funny’.

Send in your photos of anything to do with the boating environment under the three titles – The Good, The Bad and The Funny and you could win yourself a great prize, maybe lunch with Dee Caffari MBE or a free wash and scrub with Dean and Reddyhoff, MDL or Quay Marina’s or a fabulous Canon camera.

Be it a stunning sunset, a funny moment onboard the boat or a community clean up at your local club.  Something horrible such as discarded balloons, or an interesting wildlife image!  Whatever you think fits. the team are looking for special photographs, recording the scenes that inspire you out on the water.

Sarah Black, The Green Blue Project Manager said: “They say a picture paints a thousand words so in our mission to promote good environmental practice to boaters and marine businesses, we are looking for some great photos to help us get our message across.

“We want to educate, inspire and motivate the public and the photography competition is an ideal way to create a sense of wonderment and fun that will move people to take action.”

There will be prizes for all three categories – The Good, The Bad and The Ugly with two age groups for each category, under and over 16’s. There will also be an overall prize and a special celebration at Southampton Boat Show. Your winning photo may even feature on the front page of the RYA magazine or make its way onto the pages of the RYA and BMF websites!

So get cracking and you could be a winner of a fabulous prize.  Download the application form and rules of entry at The Green Blue website, www.thegreenblue.org.uk or email us at info@thegreenblue.org.uk .  All entries need to be submitted by Monday 24 August 2009.
