Cyprus shipping photo competition

If you are a photography enthusiast in Cyprus, Cyprus Mail has some exciting news for you:

The deputy ministry of shipping has launched a photo competition in cooperation with the Cyprus Marine Club and the support of the Cyprus Photographic Society.

[…]

The competition – launched this week – will run until January 11, 2019 and is open to persons over 18.

All images should be related to merchant shipping and/or the Cyprus maritime tradition. Participants may submit up to five colour and/or black and white images. Images should be the original work of the entrants. Photos that have received awards in other competitions or have already been publicly posted will not be accepted. Participation in the competition is free of charge.

A five-member committee will choose the three best photos. The first prize is €500, second €250 and third €125. The three winners will also receive an engraved glass trophy.

There aren’t that many photography related events in Cyprus, and even less so for amateurs and enthusiasts.  So here’s your chance to participate, showcase your skills and creativity, compare yourself to other photographers, and win some money and recognition while you are at it.

Cyprus has changed significantly in the last few years, with new ports, terminals, marinas, skylines, and possibilities for aerial photography (hello drones), opening up new opportunities for photographers of all levels.  Don’t miss out on this one.

Worst handwriting ever!

Sometimes when I tell people that I have the worst handwriting ever, they think that I’m joking.  So, here is some real proof.  This is a snapshot of the A1 paper which I used yesterday on a meeting.  This is me describing the shipping industry to a colleague of mine.

And that’s me not being limited to either space or time.  This is one of the most readable things I’ve ever created.  Mostly, because here you can see a diagram ,a list of things, and at least the first letters of the words that I was writing.  And, I haven’t layered topic over topic over topic, as I usually do.

The comment from the colleague in regards to this:

There are doctors with the better handwriting than you!

I know.  That’s why I touch type.
