This photo I took below decks on the Vodaphone trimaran at Australia’s Hamilton Island Race Week may not win any accolades, but I like it. The cramped, high-tech feel of the cabin reminds me of a spaceship, and the beam of light shining through the hatch could be a teleporter. Michael Lovett

Somewhere out there—perhaps in the bottom of a gear bag, on a camera with a full memory card—there’s a great racing photo waiting to see the light of day. Maybe you took dozens of photos this summer, but only one turned out. Maybe you’ve found that one colorful sailing image you’ll plaster on your computer desktop to warm you through the winter. Whatever the case, we know you took a few gems this summer, and we want to see ’em. So post your best racing photos on Sailing World and give them the attention they deserve.

The winner of Sailing World‘s Fall Photo Contest will receive a prize pack featuring official gear from the Sperry Top-Sider NOOD regatta series. First place receives a blue NOOD-logo backpack by North Sails, a NOOD-logo belt, and a red NOOD T-shirt. Second and third place will each receive 2012 Dr. Crash calendars. Upload your best racing shots to our member galleries by Dec. 20, and we’ll announce the winners shortly thereafter.
