We invite middle and high school students from around the world to participate in the 2017 Bow Seat Ocean Awareness Student Contest! This year’s theme is Ocean Pollution: Challenges & Solutions. Students can help advocate for ocean conservation and learn about ocean awareness by submitting their own works of art.

Create your own work of art, prose, poetry, or film that interprets the Contest theme and advocates for ocean conservation. Each year there are multiple categories of submissions and different themes for the competition.

All 2017 Contest results will be announced in January 2018. Bow Seat Judges are artists, writers, teachers, filmmakers, scientists, and of course, ocean-lovers! Submissions are judged based on:
  • Artistic voice, originality, and imagination
  • Craftsmanship, including quality, technique, attention to detail, and accuracy of communicating ocean pollution issues
  • How well they address the theme of the Contest
  • Meeting the Contest submission requirements
Judging begins immediately after the Contest ends, and we take the time to fairly judge each and every entry to the Contest. In 2016, we received over 2,100 submissions and our team of judges put in over 1,500 hours of cumulative work watching your films; viewing your art; and reading your poetry, prose, and Reflections. We also send out many submissions to be judged by our Partners for the auxiliary awards that they sponsor. We know that you’re anxious to hear Contest results. We take an enormous amount of pride in the amount of care we put into the Contest, and we hope that you can be patient with us as we continue to do so!
