Vote in the 2014 Brooklyn Navy Yard Photo Contest

For the second year running, Turnstile Tours and the Brooklyn Navy Yard Center at BLDG 92 led a series of photography tours at the Brooklyn Navy Yard. During each season of 2014, we led intrepid photographers on two-hour explorations, cameras in hand, of the Yard’s industrial and natural landscapes, from working shipyard cranes to areas of the Yard frozen in time.

After each of the four seasonal tours, participating photographers submitted their best shots to our photography contest. This year, we teamed up with BLDG 92’s Visiting Artists, who’s keen eyes selected the 12 finalist photos you see below.

Now this is where you come in – it is time for the public to vote. The photograph that receives the most votes will win the People’s Choice Award, and the winning photographer will receive a complimentary two-hour tour of the Brooklyn Navy Yard with Turnstile Tours for up to 30 people. If you would like to participate in next year’s photo contest, our first Seasonal Photography Tour of 2015 will take place Sunday, January 25 – get tickets here.


To vote, simply click the “thumbs up” button below a photograph. You may vote for only one photograph, and you may vote only once from a device (computer, smartphone, iPad, etc.). These photographs will also be on display at BLDG 92 starting in early December, and you can peruse them and cast a paper ballot in person for your favorite shot. Voting will take place until 11:59pm on Sunday, January 4. More information about the photographs, photographers, and judges is below.
