DIVE Travel Awards FAQ
How do the DIVE Travel Awards work?
Every year, we run a travel awards competition that takes place over six months, split into two parts – nominations and vote. For two months during May and June we invite divers from all over the world to nominate up to three of their favourite scuba diving destinations, dive centres or resorts, and liveaboards. Anybody can place a nomination, it’s open to all and completely free of charge. The top 25 operators in each category that receive the most nominations go through to the final vote, which runs until 31 October. The winners in each category are announced a couple of weeks later (usually at DEMA)
My favourite was nominated but I can’t vote for them.
Each year, only the Top 25 in each category of nominations go through to the final vote. The Top 10 will receive recognition as the best dive centres in the world. We’d love to include everyone who made it onto the list, but that would be impossible. We’ve published a complete list of all the nominations at this link.
How can that operator have so many votes?
Some people take the awards more seriously than others. The vote is free and fair and open to all, and some operators will spread the word to as many people as they can. Plus, you’d be amazed at the loyalty some dive centres can command from their customers.
Why have you combined some dive centres?
We wanted to give as many dive centres and resorts as possible the chance to succeed, rather than have a handful of big names dominate the competition. We appreciate that each dive centre is run by its own unique complement of staff, but this way more names will appear on the list. The duplicates have been named in the order they placed as nominees, and will receive the same recognition as winners if they are successful.
Why are you asking for my e-mail address?
Firstly and foremostly, to prevent fraud. Secondly, because it signs up you (if you consent, of course) to our completely free and very fantastic weekly newsletters!
