An ICMA member has helped to organise the Seafarers Photo Award 2010
The striking image on the left, entitled “Pescadores” (“Fishers”) is the winning entry in the Seafarers Photo Award 2010. It was sent to us by ICMA member Apostleship of the Sea,“Stella Maris” in Barcelona. Working in collaboration with Agrupacio Fotografica de Catalunya, Barcelona Maritime Museum, Nikon España y Foto Casanova, AOS Barcelona organised its first online photography competition on the theme of the seafarer. According to Ricardo Rodríguez-Martos, AOS Port Chaplain in Barcelona, the purpose of the competition was
“to promote and inform about the life and work of seafarers in this year 2010, declared Year of the Seafarer by the International Maritime Organisation”.
The competition was open to amateur photographers and winners were chosen by a panel of judges from the maritime and photography sectors. In all, 26 photographers submitted a total of 76 images. Prizes were awarded in November at a special ceremony at the Maritime Museum of Barcelona.
ICMA would like to thank Ricardo and all at AOS Barcelona for sharing these images with us. Continue reading Seafarers Photo Award 2010
