DEMA is honored to request nominations for the 2014 DEMA Reaching Out Award, asking members of 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 have “reached 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 2014 Reaching Out Award Nomination Form. All nominees should 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, and the people who have helped make diving what it is today. Some past honorees have greater name recognition than others, but each in his or her own way, is as important to the development of diving as any other.
