The 2014 Maritime Media Awards Part 2
06 November 2014
But Sam’s achievement wasn’t the only one marked on the night. We hosted the ‘Fleet Award’ – the RN’s gong for the unit that’s done the most to promote the Navy. Winner this year was HMS Daring, a sister ship of the destroyer Sam sailed in. We had a new award too – the First Sea Lord’s Digital Media Award, which went the Aircraft Carrier Alliance for their website. The Countess Mountbatten book award went to Captain Richard Woodman, for his history of Trinity House, who keep our seas safe. The TV and Film Award went to ‘Ade at Sea’, an ITV series showing Ade Edmondson finding out stuff about Britain’s maritime life. And Richer Sadler (see earlier blog) was made a Fellow, for his outstanding work at Lloyd’s Register. A lot. It over-ran of course but no-one seemed to mind much!
