The Shropshire Star has launched this year’s Spotlight Awards to honour the top venues in the leisure and entertainment industry and we want to hear about the hidden gems you have visited in the area with your family and friends during the summer.
It might have been where your children were kept entertained for hours, or one of the many National Trust properties, even a fabulous place where you’ve enjoyed delicious food, or somewhere off the beaten track which offered unexpected delights.
Most of the categories do not have any limitations, but all venues must be within the circulation area of the Shropshire Star. Nominations should reach us by September 11, 2015.
A panel of judges will select three venues for each category and the finalists will be announced mid-October for your chance to vote for your favourites. The winners will be revealed at an awards ceremony at Theatre Severn, Shrewsbury on November 17.
Nominations should be from over 18s, although parents/guardians can obviously put forward ideas on behalf of the whole family. Businesses can nominate themselves, however, there is no need to encourage lots of submissions from customers as this will not impact on the judges’ decision of who should go through to the public vote.
To place your nominations go here.
