ANNUAL SEAHORSE FREIGHT JOURNALIST AWARDS APPLAUD EXCELLENCE ACROSS ALL MODES OF TRANSPORT AND LOGISTICS REPORTING


The Seahorse Freight Association boasted 160 guests at Amazing Grace London for its annual Journalist Awards

London, UK, Tuesday, 12th December 2023: Seahorse Freight Association celebrated journalistic excellence in the transport and logistics sector during its annual awards ceremony yesterday.

There were 350 entries by 60 journalists across the 13 categories, including Multimedia, Air Cargo, Overland, Maritime, Technology, Multipurpose and Supply Chain Journalist.

There were also awards for Journalist of the Year, News Journalist of the Year, Feature Journalist of the Year, and Rising Star of the Year.

The Personality of the Year Award was granted to Namrata Nadkami, while the Lifetime Achievement Award was given to Roger Hailey.

An additional award was given to honour the memory of John Shingleton, editor and owner of the highly respected Handy Shipping Guide.

“It is important to not overlook the significance of exceptional journalism. These journalists are the glue that holds the freight industry together,” said Emma Murray, Seahorse Chairman, and Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Meantime Communications.

“Now is the moment for our community to rally together and inspire the next generation of writers to embrace our industry – the Seahorse community holds a distinct advantage in spearheading this initiative.”

The awards were judged by a female majority panel which was comprised of 24 industry professionals from a diverse range of backgrounds.

“Our intention in involving a myriad of professionals was not solely to establish a strong and impartial judging system, but also to illuminate the extraordinary diversity within our industry,” added Murray.

“Through this, we aim to inspire young professionals already engaged or those intrigued by the prospect of joining.”

The Seahorse Awards are supported by headline sponsor AAL Shipping, with categories sponsored by the TT Club, ABS, Lloyd’s Register, Nautilus International, Multimodal, The International Air Cargo Association (TIACA), Davies Turner, PSA International, Raft, OIA Global, and Glasgow Prestwick Airport, as well as entertainment sponsored by Awery Aviation Software.

Seahorse was launched in 1962 with the aim of bringing together journalists, PR companies, and industry thought leaders in a relaxed environment to network and grow business.

The Seahorse Freight Journalist Awards, which have been running since 2004, closed temporarily in 2019 before relaunching last year.

About Seahorse Freight Association

The Seahorse Freight Association, which last year celebrated its 60th anniversary, is a not-for-profit organisation bringing companies in the supply chain, logistics, and transport industry together with the media who report on them and the Public Relations and marketing professionals who work in the sector.

Seahorse organises an annual Awards competition to celebrate excellence in reporting, which is open to all journalists globally that write about the industry.

Entries are judged by a panel of professionals drawn from across the globe and including experts from the industry, as well as journalists, and PR professionals.

The Awards are handed out at the annual Seahorse Christmas party, traditionally held in London, UK.

Seahorse’s other in-person event is the Seahorse Summer BBQ and networking event.

Founded in 1962 as the Seahorse Club, the Association’s initial objective was to promote sea travel.

In 2002, Seahorse welcomed journalist members from the Society of All Cargo Correspondents (SACC) after SACC wound down and the Awards in their current format were launched.

Seahorse is committed to championing diversity in the industry and encouraging the next generation of writers.

Seahorse are eager to encourage the NextGen of writers and are open to ideas on how to do that.
