We will be posting the nominations for each category on this page as we get them back from the judges. It would be nearly impossible for us to create a release schedule for nominations as it is all dependent on when we receive the nominations back from the judges, as such, while we aware that it can be a stressful time waiting to find out whether you’ve been nominated or not, please bear in mind that we endeavour to release nominations as soon as we receive them back from the judges.

We hope to have all nominations announced by early next week. Congratulations to all those nominated, with regards to getting your tickets head over to our Tickets page and follow the instructions. Nominations Announced: 35/35
