The Maritime Fellowship Award

The Maritime Fellowship AwardThe Maritime Fellowship Award honours an individual who has made a truly outstanding contribution to stimulating public engagement in maritime issues in a manner that has a special or cumulative value, and is not covered by the other Maritime Media Awards.

This contribution may have been made either through a lifetime of dedicated service or through a leading role in realising a particular project, such as, for example, a major nautical festival, the consistently imaginative editing of a well-respected maritime publication, or the development of a particular maritime sector.

The Maritime Foundation will make their selection based upon the following criteria:

  • A specific project must have an impact at the national level, which engages the public in a maritime activity, or through a sea-related exhibition, spectacle or other event, in a contemporary way.
  • A lifetime achievement must include at least twenty years of dedicated endeavour in promoting maritime awareness through the media, or a similar period of outstanding service dedicated to the advancement of a particular sector of maritime industry or activity.

The prize is a hand-blown Athena crystal bowl with a detachable engraved silver base.
