The Foundation supports Norwegian seamen and Norwegian seafarers by awarding an annual Mariner’s Prize to a person or an institution that, in the past year, has made a special contribution to Norwegian seamen and seafarers. The prize is popular and was established in 2001. Listed below are the former winners of the Mariner’s Prize. If it is possible, the Foundation tries to hand out the award on the 8th of April, as this was Anders Wilhelmsen’s birthday.
Do you know any good candidate who deserves to win the Mariner’s Prize, please write us an email and explain why exactly this person or organization deserves to win. Please send the recommendation to firstname.lastname@example.org
