“The Making Waves Awards are an exquisite opportunity to have a good time the Cayman Islands, its culture and Caymanians living abroad,” H.E. Governor Martyn Roper said.

“I’m pleased to host the Cayman Connection Annual Reception at Government House in August, where winners might be announced. A second awards ceremony will happen in September on the second-annual Cayman Day in London. This is a superb new initiative organized by Cayman Connection and supported by Cayman Islands Government Office – UK, and I might encourage the community to place nominations forward,” he added.

To be eligible to qualify, the nominee must be Caymanian and have lived overseas for at least 12 months through to thirtieth June 2022. Students in full-time education living overseas are eligible.

Nominees must be excelling in or making outstanding contributions to their respective fields.

A various group of judges have been chosen and produce to the awards a spread of information, skills, and experience across various disciplines. Judges will make their determinations using a predetermined scoring matrix based on criteria including excellence, promotion of the Cayman Islands and “Cayman Kind” overseas, entrepreneurialism, innovation, teamwork, passion, enthusiasm and community service, and philanthropy. Nevertheless, the winner isn’t required to display all of the standards as not all could also be relevant.
