In 2018, we joined forces with the International Maritime Organization to run a photo competition in celebration of Day of the Seafarer.
Seafarers were invited to submit their best photographs showing a typical day at sea, whether at work, rest or play. The theme of 2018’s Day of the Seafarer on 25 June was ‘Seafarers’ Wellbeing’, so photos needed to reflect the theme hashtags #SupportSeafarersWellbeing and #GoodDayatSea.
