About the awards
We were delighted by the success of the Manchester Culture Awards in 2018, 2019 and 2021; we knew that the city is alive with creative activity, and the brilliant nominations we received in the first three years of this awards scheme proved that, without a doubt, to be the case.
Now we’re launching the Manchester Culture Awards 2022.
We want to hear about the great events in the last year: the people, projects and shows, large or small, international or local. This is your chance to nominate the people, organisations and groups that you think made a creative buzz in Manchester.
What do we mean by culture?
For these awards, your nominee must be involved in one or more of the following areas:
- visual art
- film and broadcast media
- digital art
- photography or
Nominees must be based in the city of Manchester (not Greater Manchester, but the area covered by Manchester City Council) or have a track record of delivering activity for the benefit of the people that live in or visit the city, or that benefits the local economy.
Achievements must have taken place between 1 April 2021 and 31 March 2022.
After judging, the top nominees in each category will be invited to a prestigious dinner and awards ceremony on 24th November, at which the winners will be announced.
