Photo requirements and contest rules
WSF is not looking for just any old image of a ferry. They want something unique, striking and interesting. You may want to include a city skyline, mountains, passengers, or if you're lucky, wildlife. In addition to the submission qualifications listed above, each entrant must follow these requirements and rules:
Must include at least one vessel in the Washington State Ferries system (in full or partial)
Will be printed in black and white, so consider how that will look.
Must have been taken yourself and you have the rights to submit it to this contest.
May have been taken at any time.
Do not break any laws or do anything unsafe in order to snap a shot. If you are on a ferry please steer clear of restricted areas, and if driving, please no photographing or Tweeting.
Do not Tweet a link to an image that has been uploaded to another site.
Do not send your photo via direct message on Twitter.
You may submit up to three pictures. If you Tweet more than three, we will only consider the first three shared.
You will retain rights to your photograph, however the five finalists must agree to grant WSF rights to use their snapshots for marketing and communication purposes, which will include photo credit. WSF will never sell your picture.
Selecting a winner
A panel of judges will select six finalists based on originality, technicality, composition, artistic merit and overall impact. The decision of the panel is subjective, final and cannot be appealed.
The finalists’ pictures will be posted on the @wsferries Twitter page at 12 noon Monday, Oct. 14. The image with the most “likes” at 12 noon Friday, Oct. 18, will be named the winner and their photo will be featured on the WSF 2020 winter schedules.
