The MyMirfield Business and Community Awards were launched in 2015 – with the first awards evening held on Friday 17th April at Sands Lane Golf Club, Mirfield.
The awards were established to recognise those Mirfield-based businesses, events and organisations that had made a positive contribution to the residents or community of Mirfield over the previous 12 months.
This year, the Nomination Process opens at 9am on Tuesday 1st January and will continue until 5pm on Saturday 26th January 2019.
Nominations can be made via the online Nomination Form or posted to MyMirfield Awards, Mirfield Business Centre, Huddersfield Road, Mirfield, WF14 8AB.
You can nominate as many people as you wish from as many categories as you wish.
From all the nominations received, a shortlist will be chosen based on a mix of (1) quantity of nominations and (2) quality of reasons, and (3) community involvement.
The nominees will then be contacted by Friday 1st February, to gain permission for them to be confirmed as official finalists
Public voting will begin at 9am on Thursday 19th February and will continue until 5pm on Friday 15th March.
Votes can be cast via the online Voting Form or via the form that will be printed in the Mirfield Word Magazine and local newspapers (and returned to MyMirfield Awards, Mirfield Business Centre, Huddersfield Road, Mirfield, WF14 8AB before Friday 15th March).
Please note that votes are limited to one entry per person per category. If voting via the form in the Mirfield Word or local newspaper – this must be on an original form and not a photocopy.
Any multiple votes made by the same person will render all votes cast by the person void. Any unusual voting will also be removed and may result in the finalist being disqualified.
The winners will be announced at the black-tie Dinner & Awards Fundraiser from 6pm on Saturday 23rd March at the Cedar Court Hotel, at the end of the M606 towards Bradford – which will also include a sparkling reception, a four-course meal, celebration of many other things Mirfield, fundraising, entertainment, and end of the evening live music. The evening will close around 12.30am.
If you wish to stay over at the Cedar Court Hotel – the hotel has offered all our guests a reduced rate for Bed & Breakfast. You need to book with the hotel direct and tell them you are attending the MyMirfield Dinner & Awards on Saturday 23rd March. The rate will be subject to availability.
