Our friends over at Sport Diver UK have announced their 2012 awards, allowing you to nominate your favourite companies and people – and be in with the chance of winning one of two awesome prizes worth over £5,500 (GBP) each!

There are a variety of categories covering all aspects of diving, from Best Manufacturer to Best Tour Operator.

Voting is simple. Open to all UK residents – all you have to do is send in a text detailing which category you would like to vote in and who it is you’re supporting – there is no limit on how many categories you vote in, or how many times you can vote. Simply send in a text to 80058 as detailed below, entering the relevant code depending on which category you are voting in.



Texts to 80058 cost 50p plus your standard network rate, and you get a free text for every two paid-for texts.

The winners will each be acknowledged and awarded a trophy at the industry-renowned Sport Diver Party at the London International Dive Show in late-March.

Every single vote will go into the prize draw, and there are two hoards of goodies up for grabs, worth a total of over £11,000!
