Artist, conservationist and entrepreneur Guy Harvey has been selected as this year's recipient of the Seafarers' House International Golden Compass Award.

The award is given each year to someone who has achieved distinction in the maritime world, whose vocation or avocation has been the sea, or who has ministered to or otherwise assisted seafarers.

Harvey will receive the award at the Golden Compass Gala on May 21 at the Hyatt Regency Pier Sixty-Six in Fort Lauderdale.

Seafarers' House said Harvey has been a champion of the seas since an early age. A student of marine biology, he has spent his life exploring the undersea world and bringing it to life on land through his art, which can be seen in galleries, onboard ships, on life-size murals and on eponymous merchandise.

The Guy Harvey Ocean Foundation is known for its research in the marine biology field and the message of ocean stewardship and conservation.

"I am honored to be receiving this award from Seafarers' House,” said Harvey in a statement. “The organization has done so much to make a difference in the lives of nearly 150,000 mariners each year. These seafaring men and women play an important role in our society, and the Seafarers' House offers so many services of value to the working mariner. I am pleased to be a part of recognizing their work, as well."
