MDL's 2014 Photographer of the Year Competition

At MDL Marinas, we love to see photographs taken of our marinas being enjoyed through the eyes of our berth holders and visitors. For the sixth year running, MDL is holding its annual Photography Competition to find two overall winners to be named MDL’s 2014 Photographer of the Year and MDL’s 2014 Junior Photographer of the Year for Under-16’s.

We would like to receive photographs of our marinas as a hive of activity on a brilliant summer’s day; images showing you and other boaters enjoying your boats in the marina or out and about on the water. Last year we received some stunning landscape and sunset shots, so for 2014 we’d love to see more fast-paced action shots, images illustrating people enjoying the marinas and quirky or artistic compositions. Feel free to be as creative as you like! The key point is that we’re looking for enjoyment - photos showing MDL’s marinas at their very best.


Fantastic Prizes to be Won

  • First prize in MDL’s Photographer of the Year is a portfolio of the winner’s boat taken by Brendan Fitzgerald of Fitz Marine Photography presented in a handcrafted, leather-bound album worth £700. The runner up will receive a magnum of Champagne.
