The Maritime Foundation’s primary aim is to promote Britain’s interests across the entire maritime sector, and this aim was at the forefront of our objectives throughout the past 12 months.
We started the year by announcing that for the first time in two-and-a-half years and having navigated through the many ups and downs of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Foundation would hold an event at London’s Drapers’ Hall to present the winners of the past two years’ Maritime Media Awards winners.
Following the 50th anniversary celebrations of the Nautical Institute in Plymouth, the Maritime Foundation provided an opportunity for the general public to learn about international, environmental and local marine and maritime issues at an event supported by the University of Plymouth Marine Institute and the Nautical Institute.
With great sadness, the Foundation announced the death of its founder in October. Anthony Harvey had led the Maritime Foundation as Honorary Secretary for decades and continued his relentlessly energetic campaigning right to the end.
Maritime 2023, the latest edition of our annual magazine was published online in December with a broad range of authoritative articles reflecting the theme “Between global needs and geopolitics” and providing insights into various aspects of Britain’s maritime history.
As 2023 begins, The Foundation is preparing to make announcements on exciting changes to the Maritime Media Awards for 2023 and the nomination list for the 2022 Awards will be revealed with the winners set to be presented in the Spring.
Happy New Year
