B&G SPONSOR YACHTING MONTHLY MARINE ENVIRONMENTAL JOURNALISM AWARD

 

Marine electronics company B&G Navico has announced sponsorship of the Brian Black Memorial Award for marine environmental journalism. Yachting Monthly’s Brian Black Memorial Award celebrates the best writing about marine environmental issues as explored by sailing boat.

With the company’s support there is a £3,000 prize for the winning entry, with £2,000 going to the winner, and £1,000 going to their charity or marine environmental project of choice. Prizes also include publication in Yachting Monthly; an original artwork inspired by the winning entry by artist Kieron Black; a presentation hosted by the judging panel; a physical award, and the right to use the award logo.

Brian and Lesley Black were stalwart contributors to Yachting Monthly, as well as film and television presenters and journalists. Their stories brought remote sailing destinations to life and highlighted how even pristine ecosystems were being threatened by environmental issues. As a memorial to Brian and Lesley Black, the Black family, in conjunction with Yachting Monthly, have established an award to celebrate sailing adventures which shed a fresh light on marine environmental issues through inspiring journalism. The award aims to find the very best writing that gives voice to the marine environment and brings a new perspective to readers.
