Rules and Procedures
The Lloyd’s List Greek Shipping Awards are intended to honour achievement in the Greek shipping community. For most of the Awards, ‘Greek’ is defined as based in Greece or else of Greek ‘ethnicity’ if based outside Greece. In the case of service awards, non-Greek companies are also eligible but must be demonstrably active in the Greek shipping marketplace. The judges’ decision on eligibility will be final.
Members of the judging panel personally and any companies in which they participate as principals or managers are not eligible for awards in 2012.
Past winners of the Lloyd's List Greek Shipping Awards may again be nominated in 2012 and are eligible to win the same award again or any other category. The sole exception is the Lifetime Achievement Award, which may not be won twice by the same individual or entity.
Nominations will be accepted at any time up until the closing date of Friday, October 26, 2012. Nominations in writing can be made by any person involved in any maritime sector, limited to one nomination per category per person.
Nominations can now be made online through the Lloyd’s List Greek Shipping Awards website, www.greekshippingawards.com. You can also access the website through www.lloydslist.com Alternatively, a pdf nomination form can be downloaded from the website or you can send nominations in writing by simple e-mail or fax to:-

Whichever method of sending your nominations you choose, nominations MUST include: Your name, Your company, Contact address and telephone number and/or fax number and/or e-mail.
If not typed, all contact information must be CLEARLY PRINTED.
All nominations MUST be i) in English language, ii) clearly legible, iii) clearly state category of award and nominated company or individual (as appropriate) in as many or as few categories as you wish, and iv) include succinct reasons why your candidate would be a worthy winner of the particular award, in no more than 500 words for each nominee/category.
The Lloyd’s List Greek Shipping Awards are adjudicated based on the quality of nominations, not on the number of entries received for any particular candidate.
Lloyd’s List reserves all rights to exclude any nomination that is improperly submitted or arrives after the Friday , October 26, 2012 deadline. Thereafter, all decisions on the eligibility of candidates will be made by the panel.
Criteria & Adjudication
An independent judging panel representing a broad cross-section of the Greek shipping community and impartial experts in the industry will assess nominations and decide the recipients of all awards, with the sole exception of ‘Newsmaker of the Year’ (winner to be decided by the editorial staff of Lloyd’s List). In the case of ‘Seafarer of the Year’ the panel will adjudicate based on a shortlist of nominees exclusively drawn up by the Panhellenic Seafarers’ Federation.
Our distinguished panel will be asked to assess the candidates in each field objectively and, with the exception of the ‘Lifetime Achievement’ category, to attach most importance to meritorious activity in the last year (defined as 2011-12, with particular emphasis on the 12-month period up to October 2012).
Specific criteria for adjudicating the awards are not established by the organisers, and may differ broadly from award to award. Suggested criteria may include, but are not limited to: business success, quality, growth, exemplary initiative, financial results, share price, investment, integrity, service, safety, environmental record, commercial acumen, technical or operational performance, employment, innovation, good corporate citizenship, or any other criteria the panel individually or collectively wishes to take into consideration, depending on the award category.
The winners (with the exception of the ‘Newsmaker of the Year’) will be decided by the panel. Exceptionally Lloyd’s List has the right to directly nominate the winner of any award other than ‘Newsmaker of the Year’ only if (i) for extraordinary reasons the panel has been unable to meet, or (ii) has declined to select a winner in one or more of the categories.
The judges’ deliberations and selections, to be decided democratically, are at their own discretion and the panel’s decisions are final.
