In late August, the Turku Capital of Culture year programme will celebrate The Culture 2011 Tall Ships Regatta. The Turku 2011 Foundation launches a photography competition where three winners will be awarded with an opportunity to sail on the barque Thalassa from Turku to Gdynia between 27 August and 4 September.
The theme for the photography competition is the Baltic Sea: what does the Baltic Sea mean to you and how do you protect it? Register at the Turku 2011 website and upload your photo entries here for public voting. All can vote for the competition entries submitted.
The three photographers with the most votes will win a unique sailing trip aboard the barque Thalassa from Turku to Gdynia. Dubbed the Sailing Capital of Poland, Gdynia is a modern and lively city and the final destination for The Culture 2011 Tall Ships Regatta.
- Upload your photographs (max. 3 photos) to the 2011 website by 27 April.
- Online voting is open until 15 May.
- Three winners with the most votes will sail on the Thalassa between 27 August and 4 September.

The sailing trip and the competition require that the participants be at least 15 years of age. In addition, the winners participating in the regatta must have a valid passport, health and liability insurance and bring paper copies of all documents with them.
