So many people enjoy sending us a their entries for our picture of the week, here is a competition you might like to try, because we do have a lot of sea!
Photographers across the UK have just three weeks left to enter their best images of the sea in an annual photography competition run by national maritime charity, the Shipwrecked Mariners’ Society.
The competition, which closes on Monday August 26 encourages amateur and professional photographers to submit pictures that ‘best encapsulate Britain’s enduring connection with the sea, to celebrate the nation’s proud maritime heritage and its reliance on seafarers’. The winning photographer will win the prize of £500 photographic equipment vouchers.
The Shipwrecked Mariners’ Society, which this year celebrates its 180th anniversary, is on the lookout for images including ships and wrecks, seascapes, industry and leisure for its seventh annual photography competition, which is backed by Ensign and the Fishmongers’ Company.
To enter the competition, for full terms and conditions and for more information about the work of the Society, visit www.shipwreckedmariners.org.uk or the Society’s Facebook or Twitter pages www.facebook.com/shipwreckedmariners and @ShipwreckedSoc
