Greek island photo prizes

- by Dabs Banner

Win prizes from ferry firm Dodekanisos Seaways.

Be sure to take your camera on a Greek Island holiday this year and be in with a chance to win €500 worth of quality photographic equipments and some free round-trip ferry tickets.

Greek ferry firm Dodekanisos Seaways is to offer prizes for the best photos of any Greek Islands for the fifth year running.

Last year's winner from a total of 325 entries submitted by 65 amateur photographers was from Rhodes with this photo of swimmers off the island of Kastellorizo.

All top three photo entries picked up prizes in the competition which has now become an annual event. The runners' up won prizes for their photos of the Monastery of St. John on Patmos and for a time lapse photo of traffic in the Old Town of Rhodes.

All nationalities can enter and photos will be judged by executives of Dodekanisos Seaways with advice from professional photographers.

A spokesman for the company said: "The Dodecanese Islands are places of exquisite beauty. Many of them are well-known while others are hidden like valuable pearls.

The aim of this competition is to encourage participants to discover them and capture them using their photographic lenses. Our islands deserve our help to make their beauties known throughout the world.

Therefore we invite you to take part in our competition, to capture the beauties of our islands, and we, through our website, will share them with the rest of the world."

Photographers can submit up to five photos, each one picturing preferably a different island. Entry forms and details can be found on the company website here

Dodekanisos Seaways is celebrating its 13th year as a Greek island ferry company and has carried nearly three million passengers more than one million nautical miles.

They operate the high-speed catamarans Dodekanisos Express and Dodekanisos Pride along with a passenger ferry Panagia Skiadeni on routes through the Dodecanese islands that lie along the coast of Turkey from Rhodes in the south to Patmos in the north.
