Call for Sponsors


The IMRF Awards (formerly known as the H.E.R.O. Awards) have proved a great success, raising awareness of the excellent work done by those involved in the maritime SAR community, including highlighting innovative new SAR products and technologies.

Our awards in 2018 generated many stories across multiple channels, and secured international coverage with articles world-wide.

The awards were featured in the leading maritime publications, with three articles published online and in the print edition of TradeWinds, our ‘Media Partner’.

We will, of course, be working to increase this reach and coverage in the coming years. 


Your sponsorship will not only support the recognition and appreciation of exceptional maritime SAR people and organisations, it will help to raise awareness of this important work and preventing loss of life in the world’s waters.
