Sea To Me Competition

Sea To Me Competition

From sailors, surfers, scientists and seafarers to those who prefer to wade in the shallows or watch the wildlife, our sea means so many different things to different people. To celebrate the many different relationships that you, our community, have with the sea, we are asking you to share what the sea means to you.

To enter our competition as part of our Oceans of Learning Series, simply share what the seas means to you. Draw a picture, take a photo, upload a video, share a photo from a past holiday by the sea or favourite place along Ireland's coast, or you may even be inspired to write a poem or quote. It may be a walk along the shore, a swim in the ocean or enjoying fish and chips by the sea. Get creative and post on social using the hashtag #SeaToMe

Every week, the Marine Institute and partners are offering some great prizes inspired by our seas!
