MSV LAUNCHES HUNT FOR AMATEUR PHOTOGRAPHER OF 2018

Monday, December 03 2018

We're on the lookout for the best undiscovered motorsport photography talents the UK has to offer following a bumper season of action on two and four wheels at Brands Hatch, Donington Park, Oulton Park, Snetterton, and Cadwell Park.

Each of our circuits has hosted its fair share of top-level motor racing this year, offering spectators plenty of opportunities to capture magic two and four wheel moments on camera.

This December, we're looking to reward the finest amateur photographers to try and find the 'MSV Photographer of the Year'.

The competition is open to photographers shooting from the public areas at an MSV circuit in 2018, at any event whether it be a car, bike, or truck event. We'd be keen to see some interesting submissions from the off-track areas too - if it's a good photo, send it in!

THE PRIZE: We are offering the opportunity to join the team at American SpeedFest 7 at Brands Hatch next June as a photographer with behind-the-scenes access. This will include access to the circuit media centre, trackside areas, and many of the displays and attractions at the event.

This will include the possibility of your photos being used in future SpeedFest stories and social media with a full credit. If you are unable to attend American SpeedFest, you may choose an alternative club-level MSVR event.

Only one image can be submitted per photographer and these must be a JPEG file of at least 1000 pixels on the longest edge with a maximum size of one MB. Please attach the image to an email using the address in the link below, and send by the deadline of 18:00 GMT on Sunday 16 December. We will then pick and announce a winner in the week leading up to Christmas.

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 photographer being credited) and advertising purposes.

If you have a photography Flickr or Facebook page, please feel free to include a link to that in your email too. We're always on the lookout for photographers to attend our events as part of a wider talent search.
