Welcome to the 2019 World Rowing Awards. This year we are bringing all of World Rowing’s awards under one umbrella to be celebrated all on one night at the World Rowing Awards Gala on 22 November 2019.

General Principles

  • All awards will be open to public nominations.
  • In principle, an individual who has previously won an award will no longer be eligible for that same award, i.e. an award would not be awarded twice to the same person.
  • For each award, an expert panel will determine the finalists and recommend the winner(s).
