Washington State Ferries is having a Twitter photo contest!

By Broch Bender

We know you have the best ferry photos out there, now it’s time to share them with everyone in the state! You could even win a behind-the-scenes tour of one of these incredible vessels. Simply follow @WSFerries and tweet your scenic shots with the hashtag #WSFcontest from Aug. 10 through 17.

All or part, it’s all good
All photos must include a state ferry whether in part or whole. Any bit will do as long as we can see a part of the vessel.

Classic or current is cool
The photo does not have to be taken the week of the contest; it can be a throwback to a beautiful sunset in 2013, or even a Polaroid from 1957. However, you must have taken the photo yourself and by entering the contest you grant rights to WSF to share and repost your photo.

Don’t forget…
Photo must be shared via Twitter before noon Monday, Aug. 17, to be eligible. Follow us @WSFerries and remember to use the hashtag #WSFcontest.

The fineprint
No purchase of a ferry (or ferry ticket) is required.

Winning photographs will be judged by Jeanette Mills, director of Visual Services for the University of Washington School of Art + Art History + Design. The top five entries will be contacted via Twitter by Aug. 20 and invited on a behind-the-scenes tour of a state ferry.

For more information read through the contest rules (pdf 373 kb).

We can’t wait to see your best ferry photos!

I can't believe you are asking for photos to be submitted by Twitter.

That is all

They are trying to pump up their followers and get free photos to boot! Win win for them not so much for the photographers.
