1. Who Can Enter?
This award covers Events and Festivals of a substantial nature. These would usually, but not necessarily, involve a large volume of visitors and a set programme. Smaller events will be considered taking into account their impact on a particular theme or audience. This would usually be either over a weekend, week(s), month or season.
The event can be for either a paid entry or free audience/attendance event. The event can be a one off or an annual event with a proven track record. It should be noted that the supporting evidence in the submissions for this category are particularly important as any final assessment is likely to be retrospective.
Judges will be looking for evidence of innovation and a sense of distinctiveness that adds to an event’s appeal to the visitor. Please also provide evidence of the profile this brings to the local community and the contribution the event makes to the Yorkshire brand and legacy.
