Eastside Awards now open

11 October 2018

The Eastside Awards is an exciting initiative aimed at highlighting and celebrating all that is good about East Belfast, whilst showcasing the contributions being made to the economic, social and community development of the area (which will include Holywood Exchange, Dundonald, Forrestside, Ravenhill and Titanic Quarter).

This is the perfect year for you to enter the Eastside Awards!  They are set to be even bigger than ever in January 2019, building on last years media reach of 2,566,697 and a sold out awards ceremony at Stormont Hotel.  Short-listed entrants benefited from a significant amount of press coverage as well as valuable business networking opportunities and something for the trophy cabinet ;-) 

The awards have seen a year-on-year increase in sponsorship and local business and community buy-in, with participation from some of the largest employers in East Belfast as well as exciting new start-ups and grass-roots community groups – you will be getting recognised in good company!

The applications close at 5pm on 19th October, the application form is pretty straight forward

Categories include:

* The Eastside Award for Volunteer of the Year

* The Eastside Award for Young Person of the Year

* The Eastside Award for Best Community Project
