After initial nomination entries are in (by 15th February 2013), our team will select 3 businesses or people in each category and post the results here as a list of finalists.
Selection process explained:
Our team will produce a short list of nominated businesses after reviewing the online or postal submissions and supporting information.
The short listed businesses will then be promoted on our website and in the local press during which the main 2 category businesses will have short videos made.
We will then pass the short list to our panel of 3 independent judges who will deliberate over the final category winners to be announced at the Gala Awards dinner.
