After a fantastic response from seafarers around the world, we are delighted to announce the shortlist for the ISWAN Photo Competition 2017.

This year’s competition received over 600 photographs giving a fascinating insight into the daily life of a seafarer, from duties such as maintenance, inspections and drills, to on-board exercise sessions and leisure activities including shower parties on deck and barbeques.

Entries were submitted by a total of 152 seafarers of at least 18 different nationalities across four continents, demonstrating the diversity of this often-overlooked profession. Amongst the entrants were six female seafarers and a range of positions from ordinary seaman to chief cook to master.

The judging panel will now decide on the winner and runners-up from the shortlisted photographs and the result will be announced in the upcoming weeks.

The shortlisted entries can be viewed here.
