The Shipwrecked Mariners’ Society is once again calling on photographers to submit images celebrating Britain’s proud maritime heritage, for its annual competition searching for the UK’s ultimate sea viewLaunched to mark national Seafarers Awareness Week (24-30 June), the competition, sponsored by Inmarsat, encourages amateur and professional photographers to enter pictures which best encapsulate Britain’s enduring connection with the sea - its merchant ships, fishermen, coast, harbours, and ports

The society, now in its 178th year, is on the lookout for images covering all aspects of the UK’s relationship with the sea including ships and wrecks, seascapes, industry, and leisure. Photographs should be submitted through the society’s website before the deadline on August 4. Photographers can also enter their pictures via email, post, or the society’s social media channels

The Shipwrecked Mariners’ Society provides financial assistance to fishermen, mariners, and their dependants who are suffering hardship, whether due to accident, ill health, unemployment, or in retirement after a life spent working at sea. In the last year the Charity received 560 new applications for assistance and distributed £1.4m in over 2,000 cases of need
