(MANNS HARBOR) - Shutterbugs unite! NCDOT's Ferry Division is inviting photographers of all skill levels to take part in a late summer photography contest highlighting the vital connection between life in Eastern North Carolina and the North Carolina Ferry System. The contest began August 5 and will continue through October 10.
"We look forward to seeing how our passengers capture the essence of North Carolina ferry travel," said Ferry Division Communication Officer Tim Hass. "We carry thousands of residents, visitors, commuters, and school kids across coastal waters every year, and we expect there will be an unlimited number of photographs that capture the unique experience of riding the North Carolina Ferry System."
Entries will be divided into three categories:
- Ferries Of The Coast - Photos with an North Carolina Ferry as the main subject
- Onboard Adventures - Photos taken while onboard a North Carolina Ferry
- Seafaring Selfies - A picture taken of yourself or your group onboard a North Carolina Ferry
All entries should be submitted via the contest page at https://www.ncdot.gov/ferry/photocontest/.
Finalists will be selected by NCDOT, and winners will be chosen by a vote on the NC Ferry System Facebook Page. Winners in each category will receive a gift package of ferry memorabilia.
