Nominated for Malta Press Awards

My article about wrecks and caves on Malta and Gozo has been nominated for the prestigous Malta Tourism Press Awards, which is awarded once a year to honour journalists and photographers.

Posted on Feb 1, 2012

The Malta Tourism Press Awards is an annual event organised by the Malta Tourism Authority (MTA). The aim is to honour journalists and photographers from all over the world, whose work contribute to the enhancement of Tourism in the Maltese Islands.

My article about wrecks and caves at Malta and Gozo has been nominated in the 'Photography Reportage' category, and I'm very proud to have my work appreciated this way.

The cave diving on Gozo is simply spectacular. The area around Dwejra where the famous Azure Window is found offers several great dives - Coral Cave, Blue Hole (above) and the Inland Sea.

Presentation ceremony

All submissions will be judged by a jury appointed by MTA in February, and the winners of the prestigious award will be announced at a presentation ceremony at the Corinthia Hotel in Valletta on March 27, 2012.

Newspaper, magazine and online articles, photographs and TV programs can be nominated for the award. The submissions will be evaluated based on originality, ability to promote the Maltese Islands and aestethic sense.

I visited Malta and Gozo in April 2010 to do my story, and was hosted by Dive Malta and Moby Dives. Thank you for all your help and very good company!

The rescue steamer Parat was called upon to help the grounded German freighter Ferndale - but both were sunk in an allied air attack on the Norwegian west coast.
