Photography Competition


2020-2021 Monaco - Saint Barthélemy
"Capture the beauty of sailing"

The “Annual Gustavia Yacht Club International Photography Competition” is organised by the Gustavia Yacht Club, which is a French “Law 1901” association, established in Gustavia, 20 rue Jeanne d’Arc, 97133 Saint Barthélemy (registration details at the foot of the page).

On the proposal of one of its founding members, Mr Jean-Pierre Hennequet, who has lived in Saint Barthélemy since 2003, Sir Stelios Haji Ioannou, Commodore of the GYC, gave his approval to the project and entrusted its implementation by delegation to Mr JP Hennequet. The latter, together with a few members who are sailboat owners (or who have significant experience in sailing), set up a Steering Committee which developed these Regulations, with the help of lawyers who are also members of the GYC.

For any contact about this Competition and its Rules, please contact JP Hennequet via his e-mail address:

The rules of the Competition intend to comply strictly with current French legislation and the ethical recommendations of the Union des Photographes Professionnels (UPP).

Under the control of the GYC Commodore and its Board of Directors, JP Hennequet and the Steering Committee are responsible for implementing the Competition and giving it the best chances of success, through international communication to the specialised media, the well-known Yacht Clubs and the Associations of professional photographers, particularly those specialising in sailing.
