California Ships to Reefs announced today a call for photographs of the HMCS Yukon artificial reef in Mission Bay, San Diego. CSTR is encouraging all photographers with quality images of the Yukon to submit them for review and potential use in promotional materials and displays at events which the organization will attend throughout 2010, and in the effort to further artificial reefing in California. CSTR will select a maximum of 24 images for use by the organization, and will pay $25 per image to the submitting photographer. Full credit will be given to the photographer, and participants are encouraged to provide any information they wish included in captions of the photographs to be used in public displays. Participants will retain all rights to use their images elsewhere and CSTR will not release the images to other entities for use without permission of the photographer. CSTR will return and/or delete any images which are not chosen for use and for which the photographer is not compensated.

“What we ultimately like to depict is the lasting, positive impact over time that an artificial reef such as the Yukon can have on the California coastal environment,” noted CSTR Public Relations chairman Kevin Sullivan. He continued, “We hope to receive images showing the large diversity of fish life that the Yukon has attracted in the last 10 years since her reefing, as well as SCUBA divers enjoying her great recreational value.”

Photographers wishing to submit images for consideration in this program may submit high resolution digital images on CD or DVD to California Ships to Reefs at the organization’s P.O. Box 958, Wheatland, California, 95692. The deadline for image submission is February 15, 2010. All images should be submitted in the highest resolution possible for the best quality reproduction possible. Images must be the sole work of the participant. CSTR is also encouraging photographers to include information about when the image was captured, the equipment used, and any special information the participant would like to include. If participants would like to submit images via e-mail, they are encouraged to send them to admin@californiashipstoreefs.org. If images submitted via e-mail are in reduced resolution, CSTR may request full resolution for use later for high-quality prints.

California Ships to Reefs is a 501(c)(3) Non-Profit Public Benefit Corporation seeking to reef surplus ships as artificial reefs, enhancing the ocean environment and bringing diving and fishing tourism to local ports in California.
