Steamships supports the following cultural initiatives in PNG:

Literary development: Steamships sponsored PNG’s prestigious literary award, the Crocodile Prize, allocating K10,000 for the 2012 Short Story Prize. The Crocodile Prize encourages and publishes Papua New Guinean writers, providing the opportunity for the people of PNG to read their national literature.

Publication support: In 2012 Steamships assisted the All Nation Women’s Group, which launched its book ‘Artists, Cooks & Storytellers: Moments in Papua New Guinea.’ Funds from the sale of the book were used to create an educational bursary to help pay school fees for students attending the Hohola Youth Development Centre, located in a community close to the East West container depot.
