The International Seafarers’ Welfare and Assistance Network (ISWAN) has joined forces with the International Maritime Organization (IMO) to launch a photo competition in celebration of Day of the Seafarer.

Seafarers are invited to submit their best photographs showing a typical day at sea, whether at work, rest or play. The theme of this year’s Day of the Seafarer on 25 June is ‘Seafarers’ Wellbeing’, so photos should reflect the theme hashtags #SupportSeafarersWellbeing and #GoodDayatSea.
A panel of expert judges will choose the winners and the result will be announced in the fourth quarter of 2018. The overall winner will receive a GoPro Hero 6 and an iPad, the second place prize is an iPad, and highly commended entries will receive a digital photo frame.
Seafarers can upload up to three photos each to the photo wall at dayoftheseafarerphotos.imo.org and entries must be submitted by 12 pm on 31 July 2018. The competition terms and conditions can be found here.
