Awarded photos 2019

The winning and awarded photos from the 2019 contest.

The Nordic Photo Contest For Seafarers 2019 had its final on February 7 2020. 133 seafarers from Danish, Icelandic, Finnish, Norwegian and Swedish flag vessels had participated with 1116 photos. That is over 300 pictures more than last year’s contest. Altogether, the local juries sent 75 pictures to the Nordic final at Reykjavík Maritime Museum, Iceland.

The jury consisted of Arngrimur Blöndal, chairman of the photo club Fokus and Kjartan "Golli" Thorbjörnsson, professional photographer. They were unanimous, and succeeded to make their selection within 1 hour and 15 minutes. After calling back the arrangers to the room, they could reveal the winning entries (as shown from left to right).
