Capt. Raymond Komorowski Photography Awards
SNA recognizes photographic excellence

The Surface Navy Association (SNA) maintains a dynamic awards program to award Sailors, Cuttermen, Dependents, future Sailors and Civilian military supporters, through a wide spectrum of opportunities to include recognition and monetary awards. Recognition takes place annually with major awards presented at the Annual Symposium held in Alexandria, Virginia. These awards recognize some members of our community whose achievements, in a variety of pursuits, have warranted individual recognition for their contribution to the legacy of Surface Warriors. These individuals are not the complete list of those worthy of such recognition. They, in a sense, are representative of all of our heroes, past and present, who have served their Navy and their nation in the surface ships of the Fleet. These awardees have, however, distinguished themselves as being exceptionally worthy representatives of that larger list, and exemplify the qualities that have marked the Surface Warrior over our history.

SNA has enhanced the Capt. Raymond Komorowski Photography Award for 2015. The award was initiated to pictorially represent the professional activities and life of the diverse elements of the Surface Warfare Community and their contribution to naval warfare; to educate the citizens of the United States as to the purpose of the surface warfare department and its achievements; to provide archival material; and to reinforce interest in Surface Warfare profession.
