There have been many magic moments in the two years since Bermuda won the bid to host the 35th America’s Cup and tens of thousands of photos snapped and shared in that time.

Moments of fun, festivities, triumph and defeat; from the incredible motorcade driving the Auld Mug through the streets celebrating Bermuda’s big win to Hamilton’s biggest ever party during the Louis Vuitton World Series.

Then there’s Foil Fest, countless hours of construction in Dockyard by 155 Bermudian workers, the lifelong friendships made between teams and locals and not to forget the thousand children who have learnt to sail through the AC Endeavour Programme.

To celebrate all of this, America’s Cup Bermuda (ACBDA) is asking you to share your precious moments through snapshots and selfies, in a photo competition.

Dig out your favourite America’s Cup photographs you have taken in the last two years that reflect why you are proud to be in Bermuda. Maybe it’s a photograph of your child on an AC Endeavour boat, or your mates partying at Foil Fest, or maybe you are neighbours with some crew and have a selfie with them.

We only want photographs that include people, so pull up your best AC35 pictures! This is your chance to win tickets to the opening weekend of the 35th America’s Cup.

To enter the contest, e-mail your picture to by December 10 at 5pm. The top photos will be selected by a panel of judges and posted to Facebook on Monday, December 12.

You and your friends will have until December 15 at midnight to like your favourite one. The three photographs with the most likes will win the following:

— First place winner: weekend pass tickets for two

— Second and third place: 2 x double passes to a day of your choice for the opening weekend

Good luck!
