“The box that changed our lives” Photo Competition
The Container Shipping Information Service (CSIS) has launched a worldwide photography competition to encourage people to think about the huge impact container shipping has on their lives.
Entitled ‘The box that changed our lives’ and aimed at amateur or ‘have-a-go’ photographers, the competition will run throughout August and September. It will generate awareness of the enormous benefit – usually unrecognised – that container shipping has on our lives. These pictures can be of unusual or innovative ways of using containers, such as community centres and housing, or simply images of the containers in transit onboard a ship or lorry.
The overall best entry will be picked by a panel of judges, including US based professional photographer Nick Souza, and awarded the winning prize of a top-of-the-range SLR digital camera. The two runners-up will also receive digital cameras.
To enter the competition, applicants will email their pictures to [email protected]. All entries will be considered and the ten best images each week will be published on the CSIS website, www.shipsandboxes.com.
There is a limit of two submitted photos per person. Photos thought to be outside of the above criteria may be removed from consideration without the entrant being notified.
Information that must be submitted when signing up to the contest is; the photographer’s name and occupation, the photographer’s address (or where you would like the prize sent, should you win), a title for the shot and a maximum of 75 words on the story on the photo; where and how. Why did the image capture your interest?
