About An Insider's View: SCI Mariner Photo Contest
The maritime workplace contains beauty few ever see—huge, powerful vessels transiting vast waterways and oceans transporting unimaginable amounts of goods. The objects used and seen every day by working mariners would astound most people in the outside world. What a mariner sees may not make the front page of the newspaper, but his or her perspective offers a view of splendor hidden in plain sight.
SCI wants mariners to share their unique point of view—inspiration in maritime environments.
Do you work in the maritime industry? Do you have a camera? Take a photo of something in your workplace that people outside the industry would miss: something ordinary which can appear extraordinary. Use different angles, light and perspective to depict a normal object—a propeller, railing or wrench—in a unique and unusual way. Show us the art in your everyday life.
Deadline: March 15, 2012, to May 15, 2012
Prize: One Grand Prize Winner will receive a just-released iPad (WiFi 16 GB) and a copy of The River Inside by John Guider.
SCI will feature the top 7 photos, along with the Grand Prize Winner, on the Institute’s website throughout May 2012.
