The following is a press release from Cayman Connection:
Cayman Connection is launching an initiative to celebrate high-performing Caymanians overseas.
The “Making Waves Awards” will recognise Caymanians studying, working and living abroad who have made outstanding contributions to, and excelled in their respective fields at a regional or global level.
Ms. Kate Kandiah, Executive Director of Cayman Connection said, “We are thrilled to shine a spotlight on the achievements of Caymanians overseas. There are so many exceptional people that promote our community and share ‘Caymankind’ globally.
“It is an important step for our community’s continued growth to celebrate accomplishments beyond our borders. We are so excited to give Caymanians overseas another way to stay connected to home.”
Cayman Connection is a not-for-profit membership organisation supporting and connecting a global community of Caymanians, friends and associates of the Cayman Islands.
In its first year, the Cayman Connection Making Waves Awards programme will be made up of eight different categories to capture a range of fields and interests: Arts and Culture, STEM, Environment & Sustainability, Sports, Financial, Legal & Professional Services, Education, Health & Wellness and Tourism, Travel & Hospitality. To be eligible, nominees must be Caymanian and living overseas for no less than 12 months.
Further information about the awards nominations will be added to the Cayman Connection website and social media channels in the coming weeks.
The Making Waves Awards will be presented at the Cayman Connection Annual Reception, which will take place at H.E. the Governor of the Cayman Islands’ Residence in August. A second awards presentation will take place at the annual “Cayman Day” in the UK in September.
Cayman Connection extends thanks to Compass Media for joining the 2022 Making Waves Awards as official Media Partner.
Sponsorship opportunities for Cayman Connection’s Making Waves Awards are still available. Visit the Cayman Connection website: caymanconnection.org/making-waves-awards/ or email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
