BT Sport Industry Awards 2019 are open for entries

Nominations are now open for the BT Sport Industry Awards 2019, one of the most prestigious awards nights in the sector, and which now includes new ways and categories for those working in the industry to get involved.

This year, there is a new Event of the Year category to go alongside a new Sports Organisation of the year award, too. A “Social or Sustainable Development” award has also been added, too, in order to recognise campaigns with positive environmental or social impacts.

Last year’s winners included Adidas UK as Brand of the Year, The RFU as Governing Body of the Year, and the European Tour, who were honoured with the Social Media Campaign of the Year award amongst plenty of other big names and memorable campaigns.

This year promises to be just as hotly contested, but we won’t know who the main contenders are until the entry period closes and the shortlist is announced.

Details of the categories, the criteria and how to enter can all be found here. The shortlist is due to be announced on Friday 15th February 2019, while entries will remain open until 5pm on Thursday 29th November 2018 – so there’s still plenty of time to get involved!
