What are the judges looking for in a Sports Personality?

How does it work?

Nominations for the Norfolk Sports Personality Award will be open to the public until Midnight on Monday 20th August. Any nominations received after that date will not be considered.

The judging panel will then review all the nominations and select a long list of six finalists based on their level of sporting achievement. These athletes will be profiled and put forward for a public vote.

The public vote will be open from Monday 3 September through Sunday 7 October, in line with the other category nominations.

The three athletes that have received the highest number of public votes by the nominations deadline will be put forward for the judging panel, who will decide on the winner based on their sporting achievements and impact on the county.

The three shortlisted finalists will be notified, along with the other award category shortlisted finalists, after the judging date. They will receive two tickets to the awards night, where the winner will be announced!
