Hot off the press is the announcement of the 2010 Coast Guard Photo Contest!

Many of you saw last year’s winning photos either here on the Compass or in the Coast Guard Flickr photostream. The Guardians captured some amazing images.

Contest winners receive a plaque and their names announced in a Coast Guard wide message. Winning photos may be published in the Coast Guard Posture Statement and/or Performance Report (see Supporting Documents on the Commandant’s web page) as well as other Coast Guard publications. Selected photos will also be included in the Coast Guard Visual Information Gallery (CGVI).

This is a Coast Guard family competition. The contest is only open to active duty members, reservists, civilian employees, auxiliarists, dependents and retirees.

But, don’t wait to start snapping away… the deadline is December 15, 2009. The seasons are changing so it’s a great time of year to get some great colors and contrast!
