Following the nomination deadline, three finalists will be shortlisted for each category.

The finalists will then be invited to a judging day at Louth’s Fairfield Enterprise Centre, where they will meet with a judging panel, who will select winners in each category.

Sunday also marks the closure of the public vote for the District’s Favourite Market Trader Award (cast your vote at www.e-lindsey.gov.uk/MarketVote).

The awards would not be possible without the sponsorship of local businesses and there are a range of opportunities available for the 2019 Awards.
