Who do you believe achieved an outstanding performance this year in rowing?

Here are the categories:

  • World Rowing Para-rowing Crew of the Year
  • World Rowing Female Crew of the Year
  • World Rowing Male Crew of the Year
  • World Rowing Coach of the Year
  • World Rowing Distinguished Service to Rowing Medal

Just one nomination can be made for each category. A crew can also represent an individual rower.

Please note that this is not a voting process, but a nomination process.

Once all of the nominations have been received the next stage will be a review by the FISA Council who will narrow the list down to a short list. The short list will then go to FISA’s Executive Committee who will decide on the winners in the five categories.

The award winners will be publicly announced on 2 December 2016 and the winners presented with their awards at the 2016 World Rowing Coaches Conference gala dinner on 28 January 2017 in Vancouver, Canada.
