The Maritime Fellowship Award
The Award, for which the nomination is made by the Maritime Media Awards Committee, 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, a major nautical festival, the consistently imaginative editing of a well-respected maritime publication or the development of a particular maritime sector.
