(December 1, 2014) — Via a video released today (https://vimeo.com/112206683), world renowned marine artist and conservationist Guy Harvey personally announced the winners of the 2014 Sanctuary Classic, a fishing photo contest designed to reward families for enjoying recreational fishing opportunities in our nation’s network of National Marine Sanctuaries and sharing their experiences in photographs.
Along with weekly prizes for photos selected throughout the summer, the Third Annual Sanctuary Classic increased from four to eight the number of special Guy Harvey Scholarship Award winners that would be selected at the event’s conclusion. A panel of three prestigious judges — IMAX film pioneer Barbara MacGilivray, Hawaiian fishing television host Ben Wong and Guy Harvey himself — evaluated youth fishing photos based on the their portrayal of the following: Kids Fishing, Kids and Family Fishing Values, Kids in the Outdoors, Kids in the Sanctuaries and Kids’ Conservation.
The eight young boys and girls selected to receive $500 scholarships from the Guy Harvey Ocean Foundation are Parker Churchill, Joe Cutler, Mason Nunn, David Omura, Damian (no last name), Sierra Davis, Connor Creal and Teagan Barnhart.
"The Guy Harvey Ocean Foundation has been a proud supporter of the Sanctuary Classic since the beginning," says Guy Harvey. "America has a tremendous resource in its network of marine sanctuaries and everyone should be encouraged to enjoy these areas responsibly."
