Nautilus/Inmarsat photo competition

Send us your snaps showing life onboard and win cash prizes in the Nautilus/Inmarsat 'Life at Sea' photo competition!

Send us your snaps of life onboard and win generous cash prizes in the return of the ever-popular Nautilus International Life at Sea photo competition, sponsored by Inmarsat.

Once again, we are looking for the best pictures that capture the reality of modern-day seafaring – the highs and the lows, the good and the bad, and the ‘business’ and the pleasure. This year we are especially keen to welcome video, as well as stills.

Thanks to Inmarsat, there are generous cash prizes on offer – with £1,250 for the winning entry, £750 for second prize and £500 for the third-placed entry.

The rules:

Images can be submitted in colour or black and white, and there is no limit on how many you may submit

  • Pictures are preferred in high-resolution JPEG format (300dpi being the ideal)
  • Video can be emailed in MPEG format – but please don’t send file attachments larger than 10MB at a time, as this will exceed the server limit.
  • We can also accept large files via WeTransfer.

Closing date: Monday 5 August 2019

The prizes will be presented at the Nautilus International General Meeting in Rotterdam in October 2019, where an exhibition of the best entries will be on show.
