Award Details


Stan Waterman has always been an artistic, adventurous original. He has gone where no one else has, fueled by a thirst for exploration and love for the oceans. A true pioneer, he is also a talented storyteller, photographer and videographer. Which is why we want you to use your creativity as well when submitting your entry.

It's easy to enter! Simply combine your creativity and passion, like Stan does, to come up with something truly unique. Take a photo and tell us why you are a waterman in the making


Review our definition of a waterman. Then, tell us why are you a waterman. Share your inspired response in the photo and a short explanation on our Facebook page. Be creative when you respond to our question "Are you a waterman?"

The Waterman Award will be awarded to the person who, like Stan, best displays their creativity and a youthful, contagious passion for diving, exploration, adventure, conservation and/or the oceans. It is intended to help a waterman develop their career or passion.

Submit your entry between April 1st and April 30, 2013 before midnight PST. Limit submissions to 300 words and a single photo.

10 finalists will be chosen based upon popularity, creativity and how well the submission answers the question "Are you a Waterman?" So, the more likes – the more chance you have to win!

The public will then vote on the 10 finalists; a panel of qualified judges will also pick a winner. Final winner will be determined by a combined public vote and panel decision.


You can submit your entry to us via Facebook. If you have difficulties, please contact us.

The winner will be selected and notified directly by June 15, 2013, and announced on this page. Good luck to all watermen – present and future!
