Swiss luxury watch brand Hublot announces partnership with both the “Mirabaud Yacht Racing Image Award” and “Mirabaud Sailing Video Award”. Hublot will provide the winner of both contests with a beautiful and prestigious wall clock.
« At Hublot, we have always been passionate about sailing and yacht racing », says Hublot’s CEO, Ricardo Guadalupe. « Our brand name - porthole in english - comes from the world of yachting! Today, we are pleased to join those two prestigious contests as a partner to demonstrate our attachment to sailing and fuse it with art and imagery, through both photography and video. This is Hublot’s “Art of Fusion” philosophy.
Started in 2010, the "Mirabaud Yacht Racing Image" award recognizes the very best picture taken during the year, which best represents the essence and excitement of yacht racing as a sport.
Founded in the spring of 2017, the "Mirabaud Sailing Video Award" was launched to honor the best sailing videos produced each year and their authors. The annual contest is open to professional cameramen, directors, editors and TV production companies from all over the world, as well as sailors who produce on-board videos during races.
The winners of both contests will be celebrated during the Yacht Racing Forum in Aarhus, Denmark, on November 27-28, 2017.
