Last chance to nominate – 2017 World Rowing Awards
This is your last chance to nominate your favourite rower or coach for the 2017 World Rowing Awards. Public nominations will close on Monday 23 October 2017.
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 publically announced on 7 December 2017 and the winners presented with their awards at the 2017 World Rowing Awards dinner on Friday 8 December 2017 in London, Great Britain.
