New York Water Taxi Photo Contest: Strap Up Hipsters


So, New York Water Taxi, which is now serving Williamsburg, Dumbo and Red Hook in addition to Water Taxi Beach just over the border in Long Island City, is running a photo contest. The Real Estate, which clued us in to this, quoted the press release as follows:
Ahoy Hipster Photographers! Show us your pix!

Yes, the Water Taxi finally made it's way to Williamsburg. Now all those Williamsburg (or Red Hook, or any other waterfront hood) photographers can win a year of free rides and more for taking the best picture of or on the Water Taxi or the Water Taxi Beach at the New York Water Taxi and Water Taxi Beach photo contest.

Enter pictures with people, without people, on the beach, on the boat, from the beach or from the boat. It's free to enter (one only need be or become a flickr user), anyone can enter as many times as he or she would like. Prizes are valued at $9,140.00. Winning photos may also be used in New York Water Taxi and Water Taxi Beach promotional materials.
The Grand Prize is a one-year unlimited NY Water Taxi pass for one and a $250 credit for food and drink at Water Taxi Beach. First Prize is a one-year unlimited New York Water Taxi pass. Second prize is a $250 credit for food and drink at Water Taxi Beach.

More information about how you can spend the next year floating around Brooklyn and Manhattan for free is at the flickr New York Water Taxi Pool where entries can be added through September 15.

Bear in mind, you'll be giving NY Water Taxi the right to use your photo and agree to let them possibly use you in their advertising, but, hey, it's a year's worth of free rides.
