We Are Seeking

We Are Seeking ...

We are seeking engaged, sponsors to give their name to the specific H.E.R.O.s in the fields of individual and team courage, and to the technical and support awards.

The H.E.R.O. Awards will honour excellence, exceptional performance, support teams and networks, and those individuals or organisations making a major contribution to maritime Search and Rescue (SAR).

The H.E.R.O. Awards exemplifies our shared dedication and commitment to the innovative spirit, technical and intellectual excellence of SAR teams, individuals and affiliated organisations around the world.

Your Support Will Ensure

Your Support Will Ensure

The H.E.R.O. Awards recognise and thank courageous individuals and teams for their brave rescue missions and the technical innovation that make such a vital contribution to the IMRF's worldwide mission to prevent loss of life at sea.

Your support will ensure that your organisation or you as an individual is recognised as playing a key role in the H.E.R.O. awards.

You will be acknowledging the unstinting work of men and women around the world, who regularly put their own lives at risk to save those in danger on the world’s waters, use technical innovation for rescue purposes or coordinate major rescue exercises.

As well as having the individual award named in your honour, you will be invited to the one of the events to present your H.E.R.O. Award, and, of course, network with the worldwide SAR community.

The IMRF will also work closely with you to ensure that your contribution receives appropriate media coverage through our press relations and marketing campaign, which will include capturing your award presentation on the official film of the events.

We are seeking a naming fund of £4,000 for the awards. This sponsorship will cover the cost of flights and accommodation for the recipients to the ceremonies, creation of the physical award, a contribution to the production of a short film to be shown at the ceremonies, and the film of the ceremonies themselves.
