The 2019 DIVE Travel Awards has seen 78 destinations, 470 dive centres or resorts, and 215 liveaboards nominated for the awards, and Fiji is in the running of course.
The Top 25 in each category are now through to the final vote, which will remain open until 31 October.
The overall winners will be announced at this year’s DEMA show, held between 13 – 16 November in Orlando, Florida.
They have also changed the format this year to prevent spammers from meddling in the election – it’s still pretty straightforward to enter but just in case you have any questions:

Some big changes at the top of the leaderboards since the end-of-August update – what a difference two weeks can make – and there’s six more to go…
Although Indonesia is out in front in the Destinations category, Mexico has overtaken Egypt for the first time since voting began. Fiji is steady right in the middle, so needs some TLC.
