New Professional Navigators' Award 2012

Candidates, between the ages of 18-28 from ALL fields of navigation are invited, and must be nominated by a university, college, employer or cadet training organisation, who considers that their work or achievements - as a navigator in the widest sense - deserves recognition. It is hoped that this Award will encourage the interest of new professional navigators in the work of the Institute and help them, in turn, to improve their own qualifications and status through the Institute and bring the Institute to the notice of fellow navigators in a variety of professional fields.
