What is the World Rowing Para Crew of the Year Award?

The World Rowing Para Crew of the Year Award is awarded annually to a para-rower or para-crew for their outstanding rowing achievement. The winner(s) have to be a para-rower or para-crew that has attended the World Championships in the current year but hasn’t won this award in previous years.


How do you make a nomination and who will judge the nominations?

The first stage is a public nomination, which you can enter your vote here, which will then be revised by a Panel of Experts who propose a long list also basing their inputs on given results at the World Championships. The council then will determine a short list of nominees where thereafter the Executive Committee will make the final decision.


​Nominations are closed for the 2018 Awards.


When will the award be presented?

The award will be presented at the annual World Rowing Awards function.
