SUBMERGED

Thank you to everyone who participated in the Submerged: stories of Australia’s shipwrecks project. The Submerged Digital Archive is hosted by the AMMC website.

An exceptional number of AMMC Members (n=51) read and voted on the stories. A joint AMMC/ANMM Review Panel used these results with the criteria for evaluation to select the final stories for the display. There were so many excellent stories, we had to add an additional banner! We would now like to announce the final 14 stories for Submerged:

Thank you to the AMMC Membership for your support in making this project such a success. Submerged: stories of Australia’s shipwrecks will tour nationwide from 2018-2020. There are still a number of ways to participate in Submerged, so please register your interest as a host venue via our Bookings tab.
