One week left to enter seathemed photo competition
AMATEUR and professional photographers across the UK have just one week left to enter their ‘sea views’ into a photography competition.
The competition, which closes on Friday August 4, encourages photographers to submit pictures which best encapsulate Britain’s enduring connection with the sea.
The Shipwrecked Mariners’ Society, which organises the event, is on the lookout for images covering all aspects of the UK’s relationship with the sea including ships and wrecks, seascapes, industry and leisure.
The competition’s judging panel includes experts from the Sunday Times, the I, and Amateur
Photographer Magazine, alongside the charity’s chief executive, Commodore Malcolm Williams.
The winner of the competition will be awarded a voucher for photographic equipment.
Commodre Williams said: ‘The UK relies on merchant shipping for around 95 per cent of its imports and 75 per cent of exports.
‘And with 80 per cent of UK households consuming seafood each month, seafarers also play a crucial role in putting food on our tables, facing tough and sometimes hazardous conditions in doing so.
‘Every year the standard of entries to our sea views competition goes from strength to strength, and so far this year is no exception.
‘There is still time for photographers to enter our competition and show their support to those who spend their lives at sea.’
