Lobbying for the awards is open now and closes on August 28th.
To nominate an individual or brand in any of the categories, simply email firstname.lastname@example.org, providing a brief explanation of why that person or brand deserves to be considered as a finalist.
Once the nominations period is closed, the list of finalists will be presented to a panel of 100 judges from the cycling media. These judges will choose the winners of each Cycling Media Award, with the exception of the Writer of the Year, Photographer of the Year and Cycling Media Legend.
For the Writer of the Year category, those lobbying should submit one piece of work written and published since October 2014. Similarly, for the Photographer of the Year category, one photo published since October 2014 should be submitted. Both awards will be judged by a respected writer/photographer from outside of the cycling media.
The Cycling Media Legend will be chosen by the BikeBiz team.
The winners will be announced at a prestigious awards ceremony in London on Thursday, November 12th, with 150 of the UK’s top cycling media and VIPs invited to attend for free.
