Boating Writers International Upgrades Website

SANTA ANA, Calif. – Oct. 22, 2020 – Boating Writers International (BWI) has completed an upgrade for its website with new content, a fresh look and improved functionality.

BWI is a professional trade association serving over 250 members involved in all aspects of marine journalism in the U.S., Canada and other countries around the world. Major initiatives include the annual BWI Writing Contest, which awards prizes totaling more than $15,000 to honor excellence in journalism, as well as providing judges for the National Marine Manufacturers Association (NMMA) Innovation Awards at major boat shows.

The website makeover streamlines access to useful information, such as association news, job opportunities, professional development, networking, boating industry trends and updates, and a sortable membership directory, as well as information on the annual writing awards competition and product innovation judging panels.

“The BWI website is a hub for journalists and marine professionals, and the new refresh will make it easier to keep our members informed and connected,” said Zuzana Prochazka, BWI executive director. “With COVID 19 travel restrictions and most boat shows cancelled or curtailed, it’s more important than ever to network with your industry peers online, using the BWI website and our BWI LinkedIn page.”
