2015 Photographic Ship Model Review and Juried Competition

This was the Guild’s third Photographic Ship Model Competition. The panel of eight judges reviewed and evaluated more than 400 photographs to determine the medal winners and models that deserved award ribbons.

In addition, the judges provided every entrant with an assessment of each model’s best qualities and suggestions for improvement, which we hope can help advance the art and craft of ship modeling.

The Guild thanks the organizers and judges for their efforts and, above all, the entrants themselves for their artistry and dedication expressed in all their beautiful models.

Winners are listed below by category and award level. All photographs are by the builders
