DIVE Travel Awards 2019 | Nominations are Open!

dta newsletter title

77 different destinations, 461 dive centres and resorts and 208 liveaboards were nominated for the 2018 DIVE Travel Awards, and after more than 30,000 votes cast across all three categories, it seems like only yesterday that we were announcing the winners at the DEMA Show, Las Vegas. But that was six months ago, and with the summer fast approaching, it's time to get the 2019 DIVE Travel Awards underway.

The way it works

Nominations for the 2019 DIVE Travel Awards will run from 1 May to 30 June. During this time, readers are free to nominate up to three of their favourite scuba diving destinations, dive centres or resorts, and liveaboards using the form below. An e-mail address is required to confirm that the nominations are genuine, and all duplicates will be automatically removed by the system. Adding your e-mail address will subscribe you to our newsletter if you are not already on the mailing list (you will be asked to confirm), and without confirmation, the nomination will not be entered onto the list of favourites. The nomination process is open to all, whether you be a once-a-year diver, or the owner of a dive operation. 

The 25 nominees with the most votes in each category will be sent through to the final vote, which will run from 1 July to 31 October. The vote will be free and open (but will, again, require an e-mail address to confirm the vote is genuine), and the winners will be announced at this year's DEMA Show, which will be held from 13 - 16 November at the Orange County Convention Centre in Orlando, Florida. Awards will be presented to the Top Three in each category, and certificates distributed to the Top Ten.
