MSV launches search for photo of the year

Monday, December 03 2012

The 2012 season was an historic one for MSV, with many memorable moments from events both engine and human powered! Images from our four circuits have been seen around the world, from Alex Zanardi holding his Paralympic handcycle aloft, to Jenson Button presenting the DTM race winners' trophy to Gary Paffett.

Following such a memorable year, we are running a competition for the MSV photograph of the year, which will run to two categories: Professional and Amateur.

The Professional category is open to photographers who have been accredited for at least one event at an MSV circuit in 2012 and the image must be submitted from such an event. Entries will be judged by a public vote on this website, with the winner receiving the 2012 MSV Photo of the Year trophy.

Meanwhile the Amateur competition is open to photographers shooting from the public areas at an MSV circuit in 2012 and who have not been accredited for a race event at an MSV circuit in 2012. The photos will be judged by a professional photographer, and the winner will be accredited for an MSVR race event at an MSV circuit in 2013 and also receive a coveted photo of the year trophy!

Only one image can be submitted per photographer and these must be emailed to us by 18:00 GMT on Friday 14 December. For full entry details of each category please read the rules below.

Note that all entries are submitted on the understanding that MSV are permitted to use images without restrictions and free of charge for editorial (with the creator being mentioned) and advertising purposes.
