BBE has launched a number of new awards to recognise those individuals and organisations in the banding world who have made an exceptional contribution to brass banding. The Brass Band Conference Awards are for our community with nominations from our community so don’t miss out on making a nomination.
Nominations can be made by midnight on 16th August 2019.
At this year's Brass Band Conference we will be celebrating individuals and organisations in the banding world who have made an exceptional contribution to brass banding through the presentation of a number of new awards.
The Award Categories are:-
The Innovation Award
We are looking for people or organisations who are setting a new trail for brass bands. We want to hear if you know someone who has done something innovative to make your band better or perhaps nominating an organisation you think is really leading the way.
The Lifetime Achievement Award
For this we are looking for people or organisations who have really made a difference to their local community or carried out wider charitable endeavours.
The Social Impact Award
We are looking for people who have made an outstanding contribution to banding whether that's musically or in organising bands. We want to hear about the people that have shaped you banding experience for the better.
The closing date for nominations is Friday 16th August so now is the time to get your nominations in! The awards will be presented at the Brass Bands Conference near Manchester on 28th September. Visit BBE.org.uk/events to book to come to the conference.
Nominations can be made by anyone who is not a trustee or member of BBE staff. BBE will not announce the name of the nominee. The awarding panel will be made up of a group of BBE trustees and staff. If necessary, contact will be made with the nominee and/or supporting nominator for more information.
