The shortlists are out and voting is open for the Fishing News Awards 2019!

The shortlists have been prepared from nominations from across the UK and Irish fishing industries. Now it’s time for you to vote for your favourites in 10 of our 14 categories via our online voting system. Please note that all votes are FREE.

The remaining four categories  – Port of the Year, Young Fisherman of the Year, the Sustainability Award and the Lifetime Achievement Award – are judged by a panel of industry experts, using all supporting evidence provided through the nomination process.

You can see the complete shortlists for all the categories, and details on how to place your vote, here

Voting closes at midnight on Thursday, 18th April 2019.

The results will be announced, and the winners presented with their trophies at our gala Awards dinner in Aberdeen on May 16th 2019.

The Doubletree Aberdeen Treetops hotel will once again be our venue, and it promises to be another night to remember. This year’s proceedings will be hosted by Scottish comedian Des Clarke, who will MC the awards and provide after-dinner entertainment.

The good news is that you don’t have to be shortlisted to attend. If you’d like to come along for a great night out, meet up with old friends, and support the industry, you can find all the details here
