The submission deadline for competition entries to name the seamount that was mapped in St Helena waters by the research vessel James Clark Ross has been extended until 12 noon on Sunday, 10 February 2019.

This is your opportunity to tell us what the seamount should be named and why. The winning entry will be announced on Monday, 11 February, and the winner will receive a tour of the Discovery vessel when she arrives at St Helena in April 2019.

Look out for adverts in the local newspapers where you will find the guidelines for naming a seamount and a ‘cut out’ slip to submit your entries. The advert is also attached to this release and printouts are available from the Tourist Office at the Canister. Entries should be submitted to the Tourist Office by 12 noon on Sunday, 10 February.

Due to interest from overseas, the competition is also running on Social Media. Overseas participants will be asked to nominate someone on the Island to receive the prize if their entry wins.
