The Awards, which take place under the patronage of the UAE Ministry of Energy & Infrastructure as part of UAE Maritime Week, will now remain open across 18 categories until the end of the week, enabling entrants more time to ensure their submissions are a worthy reflection of their physical achievements, progress and success.
“As the affects of the last year continue to cause disruption for many, we recognise that time continues to be a precious commodity. We have always championed the accessibility of these awards, which is why we want to ensure our audience continues to have every opportunity to reap the benefits of winning a Seatrade Maritime Award, which will be presented during what is the only award ceremony to take place during UAE Maritime Week 2021,” said Chris Morley, Group Director of Maritime Events.
With the exception of submissions made to the Editorial Award categories, each nomination will go through a rigorous and transparent judging process. A total of four independent panels will apply their collective wealth of knowledge ahead of the 2021 finalist announcement later this year. The winners will be revealed on Sunday 12 December during a black-tie celebration in Dubai, UAE.
“Once again, we are delighted to offer maritime businesses in the Middle East the opportunity to have their achievements validated by such an outstanding line-up of experts. This approach ensures that each and every entrant, irrespective of size, can be confident that their submissions will receive the consideration and attention they rightly deserve,” continued Morley.
Entries for Seatrade Maritime Awards Middle East, Indian Subcontinent and Africa will close on Friday 20 August. More information on categories and how to take part can be found on the Seatrade Maritime Awards website.
