Let’s all come together and celebrate our Yorkshire heroes.

It’s certainly been a year to remember and even though restrictions have now been lifted, we are all still feeling the impact of the pandemic today.


We want to give you a reason to smile again by announcing the exciting launch of nominations for our 2022 Yorkshire Choice Awards.



About The Yorkshire Choice Awards


The Yorkshire Choice Awards was founded by Joanne Maltby and Melanie Malcolm who saw an opportunity to recognise and raise the awareness of local people and independent businesses that are inspirational in their own way or in the markets they serve. The Awards demonstrate that through adversity and courage, light can shine through in so many different ways and give the deserving nominees, finalists, and winners the exposure they truly deserve.
