Sport Diver Awards 2016: Vote now to win $3,000 holiday voucher

Sport Diver and Wakatobi Dive Resort are once again offering you the opportunity to vote in the annual Sport Diver Awards and be in with a chance of winning a $3,000 dive holiday voucher.

We think it is important that those companies and people who provide great products and/or services get a mention for making our sport what it is - but we also know that it helps to dangle a $3,000 carrot to encourage voters to head to the online ballot box!

Wakatobi's $3,000 voucher can be redeemed against stays at the resort, aboard the Pelagic Liveaboard, transfers or a combination.

Voting is now open, so have a browse of the categories below before visiting www.sportdiver.co.uk/vote to cast your ballot. And who knows, you could be on your way to Indonesia before you know it.   

Following on from last 2015's success, this year's gala event will once again be open to the public and will take place on the Saturday of the Birmingham Dive Show weekend. With food, drink and celebrity speakers - as well as the chance to see if your favourite people and products win their respective categories - the evening promises to be great fun for all. For more information or to book, call 0118 974 2510.

To get a feel for what last year's event was like, check out www.sportdiver.co.uk/highlights.

BEST MANUFACTURER

Quality equipment can make all the difference to a dive. Is there a manufacturer you think churns out unparalleled gear time after time? If there is, let us know, because we feel such folk should be recognised for the benefits they bring to the diving community.

BEST TOUR OPERATOR

Have you had the ultimate dive experience recently? Tour operators obviously play an integral part in making our dive holidays what they are, and this is your opportunity to the tip the proverbial hat to those you deem to be truly outstanding.

BEST LIVEABOARD

The quality of a liveaboard can make or break a trip. Generally home for at least a week, it is important customers feel comfortable and looked after. If you've stayed on a particularly well-run boat, with great staff and a fabulous itinerary, why not let the dive community know about it by casting a vote?

BEST PADI EMEA DIVE CENTRE

The European, Middle-Eastern and African coastlines are littered with quality centres offering fantastic local diving and dive trips. If you think there's one centre that trumps the rest, now's the time to give it a shout-out.

BEST OVERSEAS DIVE CENTRE

The global dive market is hugely competitive. It is awards such as this that allow the truly exceptional dive centres to stand out from the crowd, thrive, and continue to offer such wonderful service to the diving community.

BEST RETAILER

Which such an array of diving gear on the market, a well-stocked and informative retailer can be the difference between money well spent and money wasted. Diving's not the cheapest of sports, so it's essential you get your decisions right. Is there a retailer you think offers an unparalleled level of product range and service quality?

INNOVATION OF THE YEAR

Select your favourite bit of kit from an array of products from the major manufacturers: Apeks, Scubapro, Aqualung, Oceanic, Hollis and Fourth Element.

BEST PADI INSTRUCTOR

Completing a PADI course, whether it is your Open Water or your Instructorship, takes time and effort. Our teachers ultimately have a huge impact on both whether or not we pass and our competence as a diver beyond that. Excellent teachers should be acknowledged for the good of the sport, and this is your chance to rave about someone deserving.

BEST DESTINATION

Where have you been in the last 12 months? Was there a particular destination that blew you away? Were you lucky enough to experience the dive destination of all dive destinations? If so, let us know where it is!

GET VOTING!

You can cast your vote by visiting www.sportdiver.co.uk/vote. Voting is open to anyone who lives within Europe, the Middle East and Africa ONLY. Each person may vote once with any duplicate records being disqualified. Please read the full terms and conditions.
