Maine Windjammer Annual Photo Contest

MWA Photo Contests

 

We know it may disappoint some of you, but the MWA has decided to take a break from the annual photo contest to put energy and time into other new and exciting endeavors. We’re taking a break from the photo contest this year.

You may still share your photos with us, if you wish, and with your permission and credit to you, we can highlight them on Facebook, in our emails and blog articles, and elsewhere. Simply send your photos to photos@sailmainecoast.com and don’t forget to include a short description about where you took your photo and what it represents!
