Sustainable Seas Trust Ocean Life Photo Contest in South Africa 2020

Sustainable Seas Trust in collaboration with the Raggy Charters is inviting applications from all over the world for the Sustainable Seas Trust Ocean Life Contest in South Africa 2020.

Our oceans are our lifeblood. Covering more than 70 per cent of our planet, they produce oxygen, regulate the earth’s climate, provide food and provide a livelihood for millions. However, they are also home to most of the life on earth, from microscopic algae to the blue whale. White spray, rolling waves, a cool embrace, the oceans are our global treasure.

This September, they are celebrating the beauty and wonder of our oceans through a photo contest. The theme for the photo contest is Celebrating our Oceans and Ocean Life. Contestants can upload photos of the ocean, including underwater photos, ocean life, and animals, etc.

Worth of Award

The Prizes are as follows:

  • The first-place winner will receive an additional cash prize of R10 000
  • The top three winners will receive a gift prize for a Raggy Charters Sea Cruise
  • The top 12 photos will be featured in our Sustainable Seas Trust 2020 calendar
  • All top 12 winners will receive a free Sustainable Seas Trust 2020 calendar
