Awards will be presented to young professionals working on towboats, passenger vessels or other commercial craft, as well as those working shoreside in the industry, including at ports, terminals, shipyards or fleets. Nominees representing professional services to the industry, such as surveyors, freight or equipment brokers, engineers and consultants, will also be considered for the award.

The award recognizes individuals who have spent their career making significant contributions to the maritime industry by helping it to be the most cost-efficient, safe and environmentally friendly mode of transportation for many cargoes.

The winner of this award, along with the person who nominated him or her, will also receive free registration to the 2021 IMX, where they will be invited to a special recognition ceremony.

Nominations for both awards, due by March 19, can be received online at under the ABOUT tab. For more information, please contact Jenn DeLuca at 314-296-1716.
