Regulation

The Mirpuri Foundation announces the second edition of its Ocean Award, a prestigious international sustainability award that aims to recognize excellence in the scientific community and reward innovative projects that contribute to the health of our oceans.

The winner will be announced this July, at an event promoted by the Mirpuri Foundation, and will receive a symbolic monetary prize of €5,000 in recognition of the outstanding contribution for a better world. A shortlist of projects will also be exhibited at the venue of the 3rd edition of the Mirpuri Foundation Sailing Trophy, one of the premier regattas of the international sailing calendar.

Entries for the Mirpuri Foundation Ocean Award are open until the 8th of June, World Oceans Day. Candidates are invited to submit a scientific poster detailing their project or initiative and send it to oceanaward@mirpurifoundation.org. The applications will be reviewed by an esteemed panel of sustainability experts and advisors from the Mirpuri Foundation.

The Mirpuri Foundation Ocean Award was launched in 2021. The winner was announced on World Environment Day 2021 (June 5th) during the awards ceremony at the close of the annual Mirpuri Foundation Sailing Trophy – one of the premier regattas of the international sailing calendar – which took place at the Clube Naval de Cascais in Portugal to raise awareness and important funds for marine conservation projects around the world.
