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 at the national level to stimulating public engagement in maritime issues.
In particular, it seeks to honour either a lifetime of dedicated service, a leading role in realising a decisive outcome (such as a major maritime event or breakthrough) or a significant influence about thinking or understanding of the maritime dimension over time.
