The two winners in the Yachting Pages ‘Superyacht Shot’ photography competition were announced today as Quin Bisset and Captain Mark O’Connell
Their work will feature on the directory covers for 2013-2014.
Launched in November 2012, Yachting Pages’ Superyacht Shot attracted some incredible entries from professional and amateur photographers and superyacht captains and crew around the world.
Entering its 10th anniversary year, Yachting Pages is the industry’s leading print directory and online resource. It helps people to search and find their superyacht-related services and products from over 13,000 listed businesses.
Quin Bisset’s sleek, hypnotic shot of sailing superyacht Vertigo will feature on the cover of Yachting Pages: Mediterranean, Europe, Africa and Middle East. It was captured in his native New Zealand, though Quin is available on location throughout the world.
A second shot of Quin’s will feature on the Yachting Pages Australasia, Asia Pacific and Far East cover, of the 54.5m motor yacht Faribana V.
Quin, director of superyacht media company Q&K, said, “I entered the Superyacht Shot from Antigua over a terrible Internet connection and at the eleventh hour – so was thrilled to win two cover shots.
Vertigo, at 67m, was designed by Philippe Briand for Alloy Yachts, with interior design by Christian Liaigre.
Superyacht captain of 26 years Mark O’Connell is the second winner. His classic shot of the world’s largest super yacht Eclipse, built by Blohm and Voss, will grace the cover of Yachting Pages: USA, the Americas and Caribbean.
Mark said, “I’m very happy to have won a cover shot. As a yacht captain, I use Yachting Pages regularly as it is so informative.”
Both Superyacht Shot photography competition winners will receive a large colour advert in the 2013 Yachting Pages.
