Deadline to Submit Nomination Forms is 5:00 p.m. Pacific Time on Friday, April 19, 2013
DEMA is honored to request nominations for the 2013 DEMA Reaching Out Award, asking the Diving Industry to submit the names and qualifying information of those Industry professionals who have made a significant contribution to the sport of scuba diving.
Each year DEMA recognizes Industry professionals who are “reaching out” in some special way to improve the sport for everyone; those who help develop techniques related to their special areas of expertise. Areas of contribution from past Diving Industry nominees have included photography, training, equipment design, publishing, travel, retailing, water safety, exploration and science. For details about nomination requirements and selection criteria review the 2013 Reaching Out Award Nomination Form. All nominees must have been active in the Diving Industry for a minimum of 10 years, and made a significant contribution to the sport of scuba diving.
Since it was first presented in 1989, the Reaching Out Award recognizes those who belong in the Industry's HALL OF FAME. These are the leaders and heroes of our sport. They are the ones who have helped make Diving what it is today. Some have greater name recognition than others, but each is, in his or her own way, as important to the development of Diving as any other.
