With the recent announcement by the International Maritime Organisation (IMO) that “this year’s theme for Day of the Seafarer (25, June 2013) is ‘Faces of the Sea'”, ICMA invites you to send us images of seafarers.¬†
IMO explained that this year the theme brings into focus to the unsung heroes of shipping: ¬†seafarers. ¬†It aims to “spotlights the human face of shipping and the sacrifices that seafarers make.”
The IMO, quoted in MarineLink.com¬†, said that it would be inviting seafarers to:
“Take a picture of yourself, or ask a colleague to take it, from a ship while working at sea or in port in a situation that surprises, or that inspires those that rarely consider what its like to be at sea. Post to any of the IMO‚Äôs social media channels, telling us how many days you have spent at sea this year and why you posted this picture.”
Let’s spread the word and join the fun.
