Emperor Divers Covid Heroes

Dive travel experts Emperor Divers have launched a new promotion to give pandemic heroes a ‘thank you’ reward.

a thank you to those who have been selfless

You’re invited to nominate a Covid Diver Hero for their selfless efforts during the Covid-19 crisis.

In total, eight worthy winners will win a liveaboard trip each, either to the Red Sea or Maldives.

Luke Atkinson, Emperor’s Red Sea Manager, said: “This initiative is our way of saying ‘thank you’ to all those hundreds of people who have taken a selfless interest in looking after the vulnerable in their community.

“Examples could include healthworkers, carers or those who have come out of retirement to volunteer locally, but really we know there are many other ways people have been heroic.”

Emperor want to hear from you if you know a heroic diver who would love to have a free liveaboard trip to look forward to in the future. To submit an entry, you need to:

  • Nominate a Covid Hero Diver
  • Tell Emperor (in 100 – 200 words) why they deserve a free trip
  • Whether they would prefer the Red Sea or the Maldives

A multinational panel of Emperor’s most loyal and compassionate staff will judge the entries and pick a winner every two weeks for the next four months.

There are four Red Sea and four Maldives liveaboards to be earned, so get nominating and give that hero a reward for their amazing work!

You can follow the competition using the hashtag #coviddiverheroes.

Winners will be announced by 14th (Maldives) and 28th (Red Sea) of each month starting 28th February and ending 14th June 2021. Final entries for Red Sea by 20th May and Maldives 5th June 2021.
