The website that promotes the largest heritage-led regeneration project in Hull has been nominated for a Maritime Media Award, by the Maritime Foundation.
The nomination for this year’s First Sea Lord’s Digital Media Award recognises the best use of digital media in generating awareness of current maritime issues through the use of websites and social media networks.
The Maritime Foundation launched the awards in 1995 and honours journalists, authors and others whose work in the media has served to create greater public understanding of maritime issues and of Britain’s manifold dependence on the sea.
The Maritime Foundation promotes Britain’s interests across the entire maritime sector. Its purpose is to inform and raise public awareness of the importance of Britain’s maritime industries, commerce and defence through education, training and research, as well as through the Foundation’s annual Maritime Media Awards.
Councillor Daren Hale, Portfolio Holder for Economic Investment, Regeneration, Planning, Land and Property, said: “The Hull Maritime project’s website is an invaluable source of information and news on the project as it progresses. As well as this there are vast opportunities on how the public can support the project, whether that’s by becoming a patron, a volunteer or simply their sharing maritime stories.
“To be nominated and have the support of the public acknowledges the importance of the project as well as providing up-to-date and engaging information to all those who support our ambitious project.”

The winner will be announced on YouTube by the Maritime Foundation on Thursday 29 October.
