Nominate now for an Award

There is no set application form or template for nominations. Instead, nominations (which must be no more than 500 words) are in the nominator’s own words. The judges are not concerned with literary merit and encourage all sections of the Australian shipping community to “get involved”.

All companies, corporations, organisations and individuals are eligible to nominate. You can nominate yourself, a customer or a client for any category with the exception of Newsmaker of the Year, which is selected by Daily Cargo News staff, and the Liner Trade and Customer Service awards which are selected by our data analysts and subscribers respectively.

Nominations for the 2022 DCN Australian Shipping & Maritime Industry Awards will close on Wednesday, 5 October 2022.
