There was a special presentation at the recent ShowBoats Design Awards Gala. The winner of the annual Young Designer of the Year Award was announced. This was done in front of an international audience of yacht owners and leading luxury yacht charter designers.
Michael Givens was declared the 2011 winner. He won €5,000 in prize money. Michael bests a competition of 30 entries from 20 countries.
Additionally, the winner and the top five finalists receive a host of unique opportunities aimed at advancing their design careers. For instance, complimentary access to the two-day Superyacht Design Symposium. Also included is an all-expenses paid trip to see the design and construction of Lürssen yacht charter vessels at the builders shipyards in Bremen and Rendsburg, Germany.
In the final analysis, ShowBoats Media is a worldwide initiative to uncover the yachting industry’s up-and-coming creative talents.
Important to realize, contestants submitted design portfolios. They were judged by an elite panel of yacht designers. For example, Andrew Winch, Dickie Bannenberg, and Rob Humphreys.
“Being called on stage to accept the Young Designer of the Year Award was the most exciting moment of my life,” beamed Givens. “It is truly astonishing to be starting out in this industry and have had the opportunity to attend such a prestigious event. The award, along with the entire experience, will be cherished.”
