Teamwork, Safety and Togetherness Onboard
21st February 2022
GMT is delighted to announce the winners of the 2021 V.Group picture competition, with 92 pictures submitted in total featuring vessels, people, various activities – all of them telling a story within their own right.
We were delighted with the response from seafarers all over the map with a total of 30 talented photographers. There were some truly magnificent pictures, and we can’t thank all participants enough for taking the time to share their pictures with us.
As shipping is all about people, we wanted to put the main focus on safe collaboration, being embedded in our core values. Therefore, the selected themes for the 2021 competition were split into three categories: Teamwork – Safety – Togetherness on Board.
Upon receipt, all entries were appraised in line with V.Group’s HSSEQ procedures, before being shortlisted by an executive judging panel. The shortlisted pictures per category were then shared on the V.Group Instagram account for the public to vote on the best picture per category. The results were as follows:
- Winner’s Name: Oleg K., Second Officer
- Picture Caption: “Teamwork on Board”
- Winner’s Name: Junel D., Third Officer
- Picture Caption: “Maintenance – chipping/de-rusting”
- Winner’s Name: Gaurav S., Third Officer
- Picture Caption: “Sundays don’t feel complete without a basketball game on board a ship”
Congratulations to the three winners with fantastic pictures, bringing to life our 2021 themes. To check all shortlisted pictures, please visit the V.Group Instagram page.
