Maritime Media Awards 2020 and 2021 presentation to take place in May 2022

Following the lifting of Covid-19 restrictions, the Maritime Foundation is pleased to announce the 2020 and 2021 Maritime Media Awards will take place at a reception and lunch in the newly refurbished Livery Hall of the Drapers’ Company on Friday, 27 May 2022.

The event will incorporate presentations of the Awards to the winners of the past two years who were announced on the Foundation’s YouTube Channel and promises to be a relaxed occasion to meet a wide cross-section of the maritime community as we celebrate the very best in maritime journalism, literature, digital innovation, and filmmaking.

This event was originally scheduled for October last year which was cancelled due to Covid-19 and those holding tickets will be contacted individually.  Further details will be available on our website shortly.  For further information or to discuss group reservations please contact
