Safe Boating Photo Contest To Highlight Safe Enjoyment Of The Water

Boating enthusiasts in the United States and Canada are invited to take part in a Safe Boating Photo Contest to show how they stay safe on the water. Presented by Mustang Survival with the support of Discover Boating, amateur photographers have the opportunity to win a Mustang Survival Personal Flotation Device (PFD) prize pack and have their picture featured within the Discover Boating program.

“Our goal is to give people a choice of comfortable, high quality PFDs whether they are powerboaters, anglers, paddlers or take part in any of the countless other water sports activities,” said Rob McMahon, Marketing Communications specialist for Mustang Survival. “We're looking forward to seeing all the great photos from boating enthusiasts.”

According to Cindy Pechous, director of advertising for the National Marine Manufacturers Association, "the photo contest [that was] launched during North American Safe Boating week lets boaters show the world not only what kind of boating they love to do, but also how wearing your lifejacket fits into the boating lifestyle."
