Call for nominations for the Queen’s New Year Honours 2023

Do you know someone who has made an exceptional contribution to the Cayman Islands? Someone who stands out for sustained and exceptional achievement and service? If so read on.

The honours system recognises people who have:

made achievements in public life

committed themselves to serving The Cayman Islands

They will usually have made life better for other people or be outstanding at what they do.

They must still be actively involved in what you’re nominating them for.

People get honours for:

making a difference to their community or field of work

enhancing the reputation of The Cayman Islands

long-term voluntary service

innovation and entrepreneurship

changing things, with an emphasis on achievement

improving life for people less able to help themselves

displaying moral courage

Honours are given to people involved in all kinds of fields including:

community, voluntary and local services

arts and media




science and technology

business and the economy

civil or political service

If you wish to nominate someone more information on the Honours system, nomination forms and guidance on submitting nominations can be found on the following web page:


In addition to honours awarded by Her Majesty, you may wish to nominate someone for a Cayman specific honour- the Queens Certificate and Badge of Honour. Recipients of this honour must have demonstrated meritorious services to the local community of an exceptional or outstanding nature. You should use the same application form but make it clear that you are nominating someone for a Queen’s Certificate and Badge of Honour.

Nominations should be submitted to the Governor’s Office to be reviewed by the Cayman Honours Committee, who will decide which nominations to submit to the UK. The Committee will decide themselves which Certificate and Badge of Honour nominations to approve.

The deadline for Governor’s Office to receive nominations is close of business on 10 May.

Nominations can be sent by email to GovernorsOffice.Cayman@fcdo.gov.uk or dropped off to the reception desk at the Government Administration Building.

Alternatively, you can send by post to Suite 101 Government Administration Building, Grand Cayman KY1-9000, by the earlier deadline of 6 May
