Awards

We are delighted to announce that the Fishing News Awards 2022 will be returning as a live event. The gala presentation evening, which celebrates excellence across the fishing industry during 2021, will take place at The Chester Hotel in Aberdeen on Thursday, 12 May

After an unprecedented two years of pandemic impacts and political upheaval, when in-person events faded into distant memory and there was little by way of good news, we are finally able to look forward to meeting up with friends and colleagues across the fishing industry for a night of celebration. The Fishing News Awards 2022 is back as a live event when, despite the continuing pressures on the industry, we can focus on how much there is to celebrate.

The only awards event dedicated to recognising achievement, innovation and success in the UK and Irish commercial fishing industry, the Fishing News Awards 2022 will make awards in 10 categories this year, culminating with the prestigious Young Fisherman of the Year and Lifetime Achievement Awards. See the full list of categories here.

The celebratory evening, at the luxury Chester Hotel in Aberdeen, will include a drinks reception, followed by a first-class UK-caught seafood meal with wine. Find out more about the venue here.

The evening will be hosted by acclaimed Scottish stand-up comedian and television presenter Des Clarke, who is returning to this year’s event by popular demand after his hugely well-received appearance at the 2019 awards.

The first of this year’s category sponsors has been confirmed, with the Scottish White Fish Producers’ Association once again sponsoring the Lifetime Achievement Award. A wide range of sponsorship opportunities are available at this year’s awards. For details on how your company can get involved with the 2022 awards, please contact Simon Hyland at Talk Media Sales on: 01732 445327.

Our charity partner for the event will again be the Fishermen’s Mission, which will be receiving table donations in support of its invaluable work in support of the industry.

Further details of the awards, including how to book tickets and tables for the presentation evening, will be announced soon.
