Nominations are now closed for this year’s Awards and we have over 200 nominations across eight categories. Now the shortlisting will be carried out by the relevant expert organisations, producing just three finalists for each category. Then the judging panel will do its work and select one winner for each Award, to be announced by Mariella Frostrop at the Awards Ceremony in July.

A huge thank you to everyone who entered – we have a fantastic range of entries which is going to make shortlisting really tough.  The finalists will be announced in ten days so keep your eyes peeled for news.
