Nominating and Voting

The nominations window for the Fishing News Awards 2018 has closed.

Nominee shortlists in each category will be available to view on our website from Tuesday, 13th March 2018. From that date you will also be able to vote in 9 of our categories via our secure online voting system.

Four categories – Young Fisherman of the Year, The Sustainability Award, Port of the Year and the Lifetime Achievement Award – will not have public votes. Instead, they will be judged by a panel drawn from the fishing industry, using all supporting evidence provided through the nomination process.

Voting will close at midnight on Friday, 27th April 2018.
