Shipwrecked Mariners’ Society chief executive Captain Justin Osmond said: “We were blown away this year by the sheer number of entries for the competition and the outstanding quality of images on show.

“This year has been a challenging year for many, so it has been fantastic to see everyone come together and celebrate our coastline, our memories of the sea and those working there.”

The society provides financial support to former seafarers and their dependants.
