NEWS: Marine Industry Awards Website Launch

The Marine Industry Awards website went live for the first time on Monday 17th January.

The awards, which were launched at the 2011 Tullett Prebon London International Boat Show last week, have been set up in order to acknowledge and recognise excellence within the marine industry. The scheme is supported by the British Marine Federation (BMF) and all those shortlisted for an award will receive the MIA’s Kitemark of Excellence, with the winners of each category receiving the MIA’s Gold Kitemark of Excellence.

The awards ceremony will take place on January 6th at the 2012 Tullett Prebon London International Boat Show, which will again be hosted at London ExCeL. With 12 different categories up for entry, the ceremony will seek to celebrate the whole spectrum of the marine industry, from powerboat and yacht of the year to innovation and marketing campaign of the year.

A star-studded judging panel, chaired by Sir Robin Knox-Johnston and including powerboat champion Shelly Jory-Leigh amongst other experts, will select a winner from a shortlist of the best five applicants for each category.

Application forms will be available on the Marine Industry Awards website from the 1st February until the 1st August 2011.
