The My Coast photography competition sponsored by Epson was launched in September last year; photographers were asked to capture what the coasts of UK and Ireland meant to them.

It coincided with the launch of the Courage on our Coasts photography book and exhibition, which toured the country and showcased the photography of volunteer lifeboat crew member and professional photographer Nigel Millard.
