USCG March Madness – Shutter Shootout

Friday, March 16, 2012

March Madness has arrived and as everyone fills out their brackets we
bring you the Team Coast Guard tournament in the form of  “Shutter Shootout” as our
fans select the best Coast Guard photo of the year.

Throughout 2011, Team Coast Guard men and women from around the world
captured remarkable photographs of search and rescue missions,
maritime security patrols, joint inter-agency operations, international
exercises and routine training evolutions to take you behind the
scenes of life in the U.S. Coast Guard. Shutter Shootout is your
opportunity to vote for your favorite Team Coast Guard image.

Starting today, you can vote during each round of tournament play at
the Coast Guard’s Facebook page by clicking “like” on your favorite
photos. The champion photo will be announced April 2, coinciding with
the national championship game.

Head over to the USCG Facebook page for voting, or use the bracket below. May the best photo win!
