The second annual Current Awards is officially in the books! This year it was hosted an exclusive venue just outside the Miami International Boat Show convention center location. It was a wonderful time when many industry professionals and influencers joined in the same room.
This year we distributed the awards in three categories: Fishing, Sailing/Cruising, and Yachting.
The winners of the 2022 Current Awards in the Fishing category were Emily and Amanda Gale, better known as the Gale Force Twins. These female captains make a splash as family-friendly fishing enthusiasts who educate and entertain their audiences across YouTube, Instagram, and TikTok.
Jason and Nikki Wynn, the faces behind the channel Gone with the Wynns, took the prize as winners of the Sailing/Cruising category. They have been chasing their curiosity around the world on wheels and keels since 2011 while documenting it all on their YouTube Channel.
Dean Harrison, better known as The Yacht Chef, took home the Award in the Yachting category. Dean is a world-class chef known for providing his followers with a behind-the-scenes look into working as a professional chef traveling the world by sea. He documents his experiences across several platforms, including YouTube, Instagram, and blog.
Our panel of marine industry professionals judged and selected our winners. Sally Helme judged the Sailing category, Carl Blackwell did Fishing, and Emily Burchwell did Yachting. They evaluated the entries based on creativity, originality, effectiveness, and impact.
We could not be happier with the turnout of industry professionals and influencers. “The 2022 Current Awards bridged the gap between marine industry brands and influencers,” said Kirsten Corssen, the founder of the Current Awards. “Influencer marketing is one of the most powerful strategies you can have in 2022 and the attendees left with new relationships that benefit both parties. My team and I are so grateful for everyone who entered and attended the event.”
The next Current Awards will be held in February of 2023. Stay up to date with the latest updates by visiting currentawards.com
