MDL Marinas selfie competition urges skippers to get posing

The best self-portrait photos sent to MDL Marinas will win a selection of prizes, including free tickets to the Southampton Boat Show

MDL Marinas is getting on-board with the selfie phenomenon by encouraging boatowners to send in their best self-portrait snaps.

The marina chain is offering a range of prizes for the winners and has promised to donate £1 to charity for each photo received.

Prizes include £50 dinner vouchers for MDL Marinas restaurants and free tickets to the PSP Southampton Boat Show (12-21 September), where the top selfies will be displayed on Stand E52.

Winning photos need to capture the spirit of the great British summer, either in a marina or on the water.

Entries should be submitted to the MDL Marinas’ Facebook or Twitter page with the hashtag #MyMDLSelfie before midnight on Friday 12 September.

Each entry will see MDL donate £1 to the Ocean Youth Trust South, a charity that provides sailing experiences for disadvantaged young people aged 12-25.

Dean Smith, operations and marketing director at MDL Marinas, said: “I can’t wait to see the best selfie poses.

“The Great British summer is serving us well at the moment, so we want boat users to make the most of it and share their boating moments with us.”
