Best of Bermuda awards: I need your help!

I am honoured to have been chosen as a judge for the prestigious Best of Bermuda Awards.

My category is people and places.

Although I have three fellow judges, we are taking nominations separately and will meet again in March to argue into the early morning hours about who the winners should be.

I cannot do this on my own – I don’t want to do this on my own.

So, here is a list of all the categories and I’d like you all to nominate someone for as many of the awards as possible. The starting point is from June 2013.

You can email jdeacon@northrock.bm – some nominations, like Unsung Hero, may require a short explanation - or leave a comment on this.

Many thanks!
