  1. City Signs @citysigns


Can be either self-nominated or proposed by others. There is NO COST to enter. We reserve the right to remove nominees from categories we do not deem them suitable for, BUT we may also add nominees to additional categories if appropriate.

Nomination Deadline has been extended to Friday 15th April 2022. To ensure a level playing field, businesses/charities that use an external Social Media Management Company cannot enter the awards themselves BUT they can nominate them for the ‘Best Social Media Management Company’ award.


Judging Process

Judging will vary according to the category. Some categories will be down to a public vote, but others will be decided by a Judging Panel. Judges include Richard Brown of QBD, Guy Marson of The Modus Agency, Rachel Davis from RT Social and Stuart Allen Founder of #WorcestershireHour.


All entrants must have a verifiable connection to Worcestershire. This could include a registered office address, a physical office, shop, or other facility based in the county or owners/employees that reside in Worcestershire.

Please note that simply having clients in Worcestershire is not deemed a relevant and valid connection for the purposes of the award.
