MIAMI, FL – This year marked the first-ever Current Awards, a ceremony honoring the influencers in the marine industry. Taking place outside the Miami Boat Show, across the street on the beach, the Current Awards hosted influencers and key brands in the industry. The event included time to network and highlighted the accomplishments of marine influencers.
The Current Awards were held to honor the hard work of influencers and the hours they put behind creating their channels. Marine brands had the opportunity to network with influencers and create connections that go beyond the ceremony.
“It was amazing to meet these influencers in person and it was informative for brands to see how they fit into their marketing strategy. Creating relationships between brands and influencers is a win-win scenario. It was great to have it all happen in one place, on a beautiful beach with a sunset backdrop,” says Kirsten founder of the Current Awards.
This year’s winners of the Current Awards were chosen in three categories: Saltwater was won by Josh Jorgensen the main face behind BlacktipH Fishing, a primary Youtube channel with 2.5 Million followers. Sailing and Cruising was won by Billy and Sierra from Tula’s Endless Summer who have a Youtube Vlog about their sailing travels around the world. Lastly, the Yachting category was won by Jared Watney, for his content as a full-time mega yacht crew member published on a youtube vlog covering all his experiences working on a yacht.
