The Worldwide Ferry Safety Association (WFSA) has announced that entries will be accepted for its student competition for the design of a safe and affordable ferry. 

The  upcoming  contest  is  focused  on  designing a  passenger ferry for  the Singapore  Strait between  Indonesia,  Malaysia  and  Singapore.  This  narrow  waterway  sees  dense  vessel  traffic, with numerous vessel anchorages creating additional challenges for safe navigation. 

The previous competitions, where a first prize of $5,000 was awarded to the winning student teams were to design: a passenger ferry for the Bangladesh river system; an inter-island RoPax for Papua New Guinea; an inter-island RoPax for Indonesia and an urban passenger ferry for Bangkok, Thailand.

Presentations from winning  student teams, with graphics, are available here.
