Maritime Media Awards

Inspiring and honouring writers and film-makers whose work deepens public understanding of Britain’s dependence on the sea

This year marks the 21st anniversary of the prestigious Maritime Media Awards, held annually to give recognition to journalists, writers and film-makers whose work deepens public understanding of Britain’s dependence on the sea and maritime matters.

Winners will be announced at the Maritime Media Awards 2016 on tbc at the Institute of Directors, 116 Pall Mall, London.

“The maritime environment is undiminished in its significance to us. We must therefore ensure that our national understanding of it is enhanced. That is why the Maritime Media Awards are important in helping to counteract ‘sea blindness’.”
