Engineering at Sea hosted a photo competition in honor of its first anniversary. We asked you, our readers, to send in your most imaginative maritime-themed photos. You didn’t disappoint, and we received some remarkable entries from a wide variety of locations. But in the end, there could only be one winner selected from our readers: TÜV NORD.
TÜV NORD takes the cake
The picture was sent from Hamburg and includes a birthday message for Engineering at Sea. They will receive a delicious maritime-themed cake as a prize. Here is the message in full that they posted on Twitter: “@SKFMarine Happy first birthday and best wishes for your fantastic magazine from TÜV NORD in Hamburg! #PicsAtSea #EngineeringAtSea”
SKF joins to the party too
And it wasn’t just our readers who wanted a bit of the action. SKF had an internal competition, which was won by Petros Petritis of SKF in Greece. Congratulations to both TÜV Nord and Petros.
Our competition in numbers
While there could only be one winner for each competition, everyone else certainly played their part. Even though Janni, who sent a picture of Naples, Italy, didn’t take home the prize, his picture was the most liked on Twitter.
Furthermore, we received a diverse range of photos from at least ten different countries in multiple continents showcasing fascinating scenery. This generated real interest as the pictures received an incredible 129,172 views.
A big thank you to everyone
Overall, we think that the competition went brilliantly. We want to thank everyone who took part and also wish congratulations to TÜV Nord and Petros for winning the external and internal competitions respectively. What type of competition would you like to do next year? Simply let us know in the comments section below.
Back to business
Now that our birthday celebrations are over, it’s time to get back to business as usual. We have a number of brand-new articles lined up on a variety of topics, including a webinar on condition-based maintenance strategies.
