The full list of finalists for the ninth annual The Maritime Standard Awards, which will be held on Tuesday 15h November at the Atlantis the Palm, Dubai, has been confirmed.
The specially assembled panel of judges, all experts in their respective fields, and drawn from right across the maritime industry, has in recent weeks been assessing nominations received for a total of 20 different categories. The winners of each of the Awards will be announced on the night but the shortlist has now been revealed for each category.
The Editor of The Maritime Standard, Clive Woodbridge, says, “The entries this year were of a very high standard, and it was clear that companies have been listening to the judges and consequently submitted a lot of evidence and testimony to support their claims. The process was a tough one and very rigorous. But we have narrowed the list down to an elite group of finalists and each of them can be justifiably proud of their achievements.”
