V.News Photography Competition 2015

Friday, March 27 - 2015

Enter the V.News Photography Competition 2015!

V.News Editor Rachael Simpson said: "I'm delighted to launch the V.News Photography Competition for 2015. We had a wonderful response in 2014 and received some really brilliant photos from our V.Group seafarers. I encourage all our seafarers to take part in this year's competition, even if you're not a keen photographer it's worth giving it a try - you might discover a hidden talent!"

This year's theme for photographs is 'THE SEAFARER LIFE'. The best photo will win a new iPad mini.

Please send your entries to - rachael.simpson@vships.com

Remember to include your name, rank/job title, local V.Ships office, a description of the photo and your contact details.

Rachael added: "Seafarers often get to see sights at sea that those of us on shore can only dream of. They have a unique opportunity to take interesting and creative photographs and I very much look forward to seeing this year's entries. Good luck everyone!"
