The International Maritime Web Awards seek to encourage maritime education on the internet and our free awards system is open to all who provide non-commercial websites with free access to all, that either focus on some historical aspect of the maritime past, or on contemporary shipping matters that will be of interest to mariners and non-mariners alike on maritime subjects. Although the awards are completely free, they are not freely handed out to everyone who applies and serious judging criteria are applied to every application before an award is made, to ensure that those who do win an award can be rightly proud of their achievement.

Websites that win a Maritime Web Award are sent an award symbol to display on their sites and a printable certificate Click here to see an example.
