The contest began Aug. 5 and will continue through Oct. 10.

“We look forward to seeing how our passengers capture the essence of North Carolina ferry travel,” said Ferry Division Communication Officer Tim Hass.

“We carry thousands of residents, visitors, commuters and school kids across coastal waters every year, and we expect there will be an unlimited number of photographs that capture the unique experience of riding the North Carolina Ferry System,” Hass said.

Entries will be divided into three categories: Ferries Of The Coast, featuring photos with a ferry as the main subject; Onboard Adventures, using photos taken while onboard a ferry vessel; and Seafaring Selfies. which will be a picture taken of yourself or your group onboard a North Carolina ferry.

All entries should be submitted via the contest page at

Finalists will be selected by the North Carolina Department of Transportation, and winners will be chosen by a vote on the Ferry System Facebook Page.

Winners in each category will receive a gift package of ferry memorabilia.
