Whether you’re a newbie or if you’ve been shooting and editing for years, we invite you to enter the Burgess Crew Photographer and Videographer of the Year 2021 in association with Dockwalk photo and video competition.

You have the chance to win the latest GoPro and accessory bundle worth EUR 800 and to be on the cover of Dockwalk magazine. Prizes will be given for both the winner and runner-up in both photo and video categories. All entries that meet the criteria below will be featured in Burgess and Dockwalk digital content — maybe even in print! Videos will also be featured on Dockwalk and BOAT International's home page and social media channels.

There are three words that encapsulate the Burgess difference and those three words form the creative brief for this year: Experience, Exploration, Expertise. In video, stills, or both, we want you to view your yachting adventures through the lens of one or more of those words to frame your unique take on life at sea.

Judges from BlueiProd, Burgess, Dockwalk, and YachtieWorld will be judging your work this year.
