Seatrade Awards Entry and Shortlist Process

Becoming a finalist is an achievement itself, with a panel of independent judges scrutinising the very best from across each category.

Following the announcement of the shortlist, a second round of judging will then take place, with the eventual winners only announced during a presentation evening.
