Photography Competition 2020

Ultimate Sea View 2020

The Shipwrecked Mariners’ Society is delighted to announce the results of its 2020 maritime photography competition searching for the UK’s ultimate sea view!

In a record-breaking year of more than 2,000 entries, the judges awarded the overall prize to Laurence Hartwell for his entry, ‘Beam Trawlers Landing To The Fish Market At Night’, which shows trawlers with their catches at the fishmarket in Newlyn, Cornwall. The image won the amateur photographer a £500 prize voucher for photographic equipment.

In addition to the overall prize, winners were also named in four categories:

  • Coastal Views: Caroline Walker – ‘Heugh Breakwater’, taken in Hartlepool, County Durham.
  • People & Recreation: Katie Vincent – ‘Into the Mist’, taken in Lancing, West Sussex.
  • Industry: Stephen Duncombe – ‘To The Rescue!’, taken in Cromer, Norfolk.
  • Ships & Wrecks: Ian Butler – ‘Mylor Harbour’, taken in Mylor, Cornwall.
