Life at sea

Every picture tells a story, and we want to see yours! We’re inviting seafarers around the world to submit their photos oif life on board and help us to show people what life on board ship is really like.

We want to see pictures that show the best and worst aspects of working at sea. It could be a beautiful sunset or a journey through rough waters, a colleague hard at work or a crew relaxing after a busy day on board. It’s your story to tell however you want to.

You don’t have to be an expert photographer or own expensive equipment to enter. A quick snap taken on a camera phone can capture a moment perfectly, and sometimes the best pictures are taken at short notice and without any thought, so get snapping!

Please include your name, location and ship name when sending in your photos. Entrants will have the chance to have their photos reproduced in MtS magazines and posters and can be shared on our website and social media channels.

To send in your photos, email uspost them on our Facebook page or tweet them to us.


For some people, a single still photo isn't quite enough. If you're shooting videos while on board, we'd like to see those too. You can send them in by email, post them on our Facebook page or tweet them to us for the chance to have them included in our Life@Sea video. Have a look at our most recent collection below.
