Now in their seventh year, the awards annually recognise and reward the cream of the North East's cultural crop across a spectrum of creative arenas. As in previous years, the 2013 awards will be given out in 15 categories.
Nominations should relate to pieces of work, performances, achievements or happenings which have occurred between January 1, 2013 and December 31, 2013... so there's still time to do something award winning if you haven't already! Obviously the Special Contribution Award nomination can relate to a lifetime of cultural achievements.
We're keeping the details of the ceremony, to be held in Spring 2014, under tight wraps at the moment... but one thing we can reveal for sure, we'll be giving out awards to the best the North East has to offer when it comes to culture.
