There is an awesome opportunity for students K-12 to submit an original poster that creatively depicts the history and importance of protecting the planet and the ocean from the impact of shipping by recognizing the importance of the MARPOL Convention (International Convention for the Prevention of Pollution from Ships).  The theme reflects the International Maritime Organization’s (IMO) 2023 World Maritime Day Theme. Students are asked to submit an original artwork that is based on the Torrey Canyon oil spill in 1967, the largest oil disaster at the time. It was one of the key moments that led to the development of the MARPOL Convention, in force since 1973.  Today, MARPOL helps prevent pollution of the sea by:

  • MARPOL Annex I oil,

  • MARPOL Annex II- noxious liquid substances in bulk,

  • MARPOL Annex III- harmful substances in packaged form,

  • MARPOL Annex IV sewage

  • MARPOL Annex V garbage from ships, and

  • MARPOL Annex VI air pollution from ship emissions, and regulation of energy efficiency.


Here is the link for submissions: Art Contest - NAMEPA and I would love to get the word out to the Falmouth schools students.
