ISWAN is excited to announce the launch of our 2017 Photo Competition for seafarers.

We are inviting all seafarers to submit photos of a typical day in seafaring life, including work, port and leisure time. Entrants do not have to be experienced photographers with expensive cameras – just a smartphone is fine, but photos must be high resolution and those featuring people are encouraged.

The winner will receive a new GoPro HERO5 Session. They will also feature in future ISWAN publications, and all shortlisted entries will be showcased on ISWAN’s social media pages.

The deadline for entries is Friday 10th February 2017. Our panel of judges will decide on the shortlist, winner and runners up, and these will be announced in late February. Our judges this year are:

Luca Tommasi, Project Manager, ITF Seafarers’ Trust
Sue Henney, Head of Marketing, KVH Media Group
Sampsa Sihvola, CEO, Finnish Seamen’s Service

Any seafarers wishing to enter may send up to five high resolution images to, including their full name, address and phone number in order to be contacted if successful, along with the name of their ship and where the photo was taken.
