Photo competition – Shoot the Sea Stallion!
The Viking Ship Museum in Roskilde is starting a photo competition as the Sea Stallion from Glendalough arrives in Denmark
Everyone with access to a digital camera has the chance to take part in the competition to take the most beautiful, the funniest or the weirdest picture of the Sea Stallion on its voyage through Danish waters.
Wind direction and strength permitting, the route through Danish waters will be as follows: through the Limfjord, with a short stop in Glyngøre. Down the east coast of Jutland and to the mouth of the Isefjord, Roskilde Fjord and arrival at the Viking Ship Museum in Roskilde on 9 August. You can find out where the ship is at any time on www.havhingsten.dk before you go out into the summer weather to watch the Sea Stallion sail by.
The deadline for sending photos to skyd(at)havhingsten.dk is 10 August 2008, after which a competent jury will pick the winners by 12 August 2008. The winners will be informed direct. Participants must remember to give their name and contact information and the photo must not exceed 2MB. The Viking Ship Museum has all rights to photos sent in but will credit with the photographer’s name and where and when the picture was taken.
The winner of the competition will win a sailing trip with the Sea Stallion from Glendalough in the last weekend of September 2008. The second prize is a two-hour sailing trip in one of the Viking Ship Museum’s traditional boats for up to nine people, and the third prize is a copy of the Viking Ship Museum’s newly published photo book ‘The Sea Stallion from Glendalough. Dublin–Roskilde 2007’.
The Museum hopes that the photo competition will get even more people to follow the Sea Stallion’s voyage across Denmark and enjoy the fantastic sight.
