Houston 2017: Photography Competition winners announced

The INTERTANKO Photography Competition, sponsored by Wallem Shipmanagement, closed out the Gala Dinner at the Annual Tanker Event in Houston.

The shortlisted entries were on display throughout the first two days of the event and initiated much debate over their individual merits from delegates, who were invited to vote for their favourite image via their smartphones.

The winners on the night, as voted for by delegates, were:

First place

Milky Way and the Phytoplankton in the Indian Ocean — by 2nd Officer Raul Andi, Euronav

Second place

Storm in the North Atlantic — by Capt Peter Cornelissen, MF Shipping

Third place

Crete — by Capt Andrei Puchkov, Tsakos Columbia Shipmanagement

Simon Doughty of Wallem was on hand to announce the winners, and it was clear from the murmurs within the room as the winners were announced that those in attendance had their own opinions… and weren’t afraid to share them.

The photography competition has become a popular addition to INTERTANKO’s Annual Tanker Event programme and we will run it again at next year’s event, which will take place in June in Rome.

INTERTANKO would like to thank all of those Members who encouraged their staff to contribute and we hope to have even more entries next year to continue the momentum of the previous two years.
