NSW Maritime Medal nominations for individuals and groups now open.

Nominations for the biennial NSW Maritime Medal are now being called for. First presented in 2006, the award recognises the outstanding and sustained contributions of individuals and organisations in the boating and maritime community.

“While the bulk of us practice safe boating all the time there are many people in the community that often go above and beyond,” said Kevin Anderson, Parliamentary Secretary for Regional Roads, Maritime and Transport.

“We want to find these people and recognise that commitment and contribution – whether it’s a safety measure, an innovative solution to aid boating safety or outstanding contribution to the community, now is the time to put those nominations in.

“The Maritime Medal judging panel looks forward to reviewing the nominations.”

Nominations close on 30 June 2017. Finalists in the nomination process will be invited to attend a special breakfast ceremony at this year’s Sydney International Boat Show on Friday 4 August 2017 when the medallists will be announced.

Nominations and application criteria for this year’s Maritime Medal can be found here. More information about the NSW Maritime Medal is available here
